HOLMES Chapel Comprehensive School’s sixth form turned yellow on Friday to raise money for the mental health charity Young Minds.

The event was the first charity fundraiser of the year staged by the sixth form.

It was held to coincide with mental health awareness week, when where everyone wears something yellow to raise money and awareness about mental health issues in children and teenagers.

Jo Camm, director of sixth form, said: “We decided to join in with this event, and had a great turn-out of students and teachers wearing their brightest yellow T-shirts, jumpers and ties for the day.

“Some even went the extra mile to make their hair glow a sunny hue for the day.

In total, from students and teachers, we raised an impressive £139, which will go to helping raise awareness of mental health in young people and to getting teenagers and children the help they need.

“I would like to everyone for making the event such a great success.”
