For the past year, Fakenham College Council has been raising money for West Norfolk MIND, the mental health charity. It was a year filled with bake sales; Valentine’s day, Easter, Summer time, Halloween, Christmas. Alongside this we have had Halloween Dress up events, Christmas Jumper days and a well supported biscuit decorating event. It wasn’t just the efforts of the 8 council members: the whole sixth form took part in a sponsored walk from Fakenham to Wells-next-the-sea. This raised over £500 and resulted in many blisters and greatly helped the year 12 students to become a stronger team. We chose the charity West Norfolk MIND due to the support it provides many people in our community and the necessity to support those suffering mental health issues. One member of the college council was able to witness first hand the amazing support network this charity has helped to create across West Norfolk and the critical facilities it runs daily offering food and warmth for those who need it.
Next year’s College Council elections are on Friday 2nd December.
