Students from Beverley Joint Sixth Form have walked from Beverley to Hull in a bid to raise money and awareness for the Young Minds Charity.
Molly Brown, who organised the walk was joined by fellow students who walked from the Market Cross to Queen Victoria Square in Hull.
Explaining more about why the students held the walk Molly said;
“I organised the 10 mile walk in memory of my cousin who I tragically lost to depression and suicide, mostly down to the long waiting list for counselling due to lack of Government funding.”
Young Minds is the UK’s leading charity championing the wellbeing and mental health of young people.
As a charity they exist so that young people have the strongest possible voice in improving their mental health, supporting parents to help their children through difficult times
They strive to make sure everything, from Government policy to practice in schools and services, is driven by young people’s experiences and aspirations.
Following the walk Molly was thrilled that the group reached their goal and the target they set, she said;
“With the support of the Beverley community and collages across Beverley and Hull I am pleased to say we achieved our target of £150.”
“More importantly the coming together of teens across Beverley to stand up for this cause is marvelous and they deserve recognition for their efforts.”
