Coming Together for Charity Day
BSC was certainly the ‘place to be’ on Monday as we all joined together to link up with Place2Be. Red and yellow was in abundance to brighten a damp day whilst the cross campus assemblies informed us of the vital work carried out by the charity. Hearing just one out of the thousands of stories that could have been shared, about how a six-year-old boy’s life was transformed through Place2Be’s in school counselling services, changing his “heart of lead to a heart of gold” struck a chord with us all, and spurred us on to do what we could to help.
Throughout the morning, children from all three schools came to the Mem Hall to join their chains of ideas together, before we stretched it all out to see just how far our efforts would go. Imogen Slazenger from Place2Be was bowled over by how everyone had contributed to such an “inspiring day”. From youngest to oldest, we have considered the importance of mental wellbeing and supporting those who, for a variety of reasons, are struggling with mental health problems.
On behalf of Place2Be, thank you for enthusiastically engaging with the issues and giving so generously. Our support will enable Place2Be to work with even more of the country’s most vulnerable children.
Mr Morris, College Chaplain
