Queenswood School, Fundraising Initiative
The Foundation would like to recognise and thank local school Queenswood in Brookmans Park, Hertfordshire.
An all girls school Queenswood is divided into four competitive houses, Waller, Hartley, Clapham North and Clapham South. Year 9 students from each house work with each House’s Charity Representative were they have the opportunity to discuss and vote on which charity their house wishes to raise money for throughout their coming academic year.
We are thrilled that The Counselling Foundation was the choice of Waller House. Head of Waller House,Miss King said “the girls felt mental health and well being should be talked about more and that as many people as possible should have access to the help they need after noting the incline in mental health issues being identified in young women.”
With a competitive spirit, the students have raised an impressive £800 so far. This has been through cake sales, non uniform days and the sale of Foundation branded hoodies
All funds raised go towards helping to ensure high quality subsidised counselling services are available in the local community, across Hertfordshire and Bedfordshire,
