Students and staff at Immanuel College have joined forces to raise money for mental health charity, Mind, with a 30-day challenge as part of Move for Mind.
Immanuel College is based on Leeds Road in Idle, Bradford, and is part of the Bradford Diocesan Academies Trust, which leads a family of thirteen primary and four secondary schools across the region to deliver high quality education within the context of Christian belief and practice.
The school has already raised over £1350 and the team have started their 30 days of challenges for Move for Mind, which aims to raise money for Mind In Bradford with fundraisers setting their own goals. Students taking part have set challenges including 15 hours of drumming, 300 kick-ups and cycling or walking every day.
Mrs Green, Office Manager at Immanuel College has been coordinating the activities and hopes the school can raise over £1500 for the charity. Mrs Green said:
“Mind is such an important charity to all of us at Immanuel College. We know how difficult it can be for young people to access the services they need when it comes to dealing with mental health and Mind do such a brilliant job that we all wanted to show our support. I’ve been getting out and about walking and running and it’s wonderful to see our students and staff doing the same.”
Hayley Smith, Communications & Marketing Manager, Mind in Bradford, added:
‘From running and kick-ups to drumming and cycling, Immanuel College have pulled out all the stops to support our Move for Mind campaign. We are truly grateful for everyone’s hard work and support, keep going!’
