Norwich School Raises £691 for Mental Health Foundation

23 November 2021

Norwich School have been presented with a certificate to thank the school for their fundraising efforts after we held a 'Wear Something Green' day to mark World Mental Health Day.

World Mental Health Day is a chance to talk about mental health in general, how we need to look after it, and how important it is to talk about things and get help if you are struggling.

This year, World Mental Health Day fell on Sunday 10 October and Norwich School chose to mark it on Friday 8 October. The Charities Committee chose the Mental Health Foundation as their chosen charity to raise money for. 

The Mental Health Foundation provided green ribbon pins and pupils and staff were encouraged to wear one to show their support and to use the hashtag #PinItForMentalHealth on social media. The Charities Committee also chose to make the day a home clothes day, asking pupils to wear something green to raise awareness for World Mental Health Day.

Overall, pupils raised £691 for Mental Health Foundation. The charity is so impressed by the 'Wear Something Green' initiative that they are encouraging other schools to use it as a future fundraising idea.

A representative for the charity said "We just wanted to say a huge thank you for holding a Wear it Green day at Norwich school and raising a fantastic £691!

The money raised will help us work towards a mentally healthier future for all. The Mental Health Foundation are part of the national mental health response to the coronavirus pandemic. The money you have raised will help us to continue providing information and advice to people during these unsettling times."
