Students on the NCS* scheme Powered by Footprint Hants held a community fair on the North Churchyard at Romsey Abbey in July 2014 in support of Triangulate. On sale were a range of craft items and refreshments, fund-raising games and information about the work of Triangulate. The students were seen throughout the town in their distinctive orange T shirts encouraging members of the public to donate to our work and to learn more about mental health.
We were delighted to receive a cheque for £702.47 from this activity and will be giving the money back to local schools in support of school mental wellbeing activities.
*The National Citizen Service (NCS) is a government initiative across the country. Students aged 16 and 17 come together for a few weeks with others whom they would not normally have the opportunity to work and share experiences with. Over several weeks it provides them with a springboard for the future by developing new skills, confidence and a broader set of horizons.
