Get­ting to the heart of the mat­ter

Midweek Visiter - - St Joseph’s Hospice -

BACK in July, Sa­cred Heart stu­dents swapped their books for the beach, as they em­barked on a spon­sored walk.

More than 400 stu­dents and staff took part in the char­ity ram­ble as part of an ac­tiv­ity day to raise funds for the Men­tal Health char­ity, Imag­ine.

The walk saw the ac­tive youngsters set off from the Lower Site be­fore head­ing to Crosby beach.

Upon their ar­rival, the stu­dents donned red T-shirts and took part in a num­ber of ac­tiv­i­ties in­clud­ing foot­ball and beach vol­ley­ball, which were or­gan­ised by the school’s PE staff.

To end what was a very suc­cess­ful day, Year 7 and 8 stu­dents cre­ated the ‘Heart of Crosby’ on the beach.

Fol­low­ing the event, the then Mayor, Cllr Ian Brodie-Browne vis­ited Year 7 and 8 stu­dents at Lower Site and de­liv- ered an in­ter­est­ing and in­for­ma­tive talk on young peo­ple and men­tal health.

A cheque for £1,000 has now been pre­sented to rep­re­sen­ta­tives from Imag­ine, at their Liver­pool of­fice.
