Published
Tuesday 10 May

Myerscough College students have raised thousands of pounds for charity this year.

Myers Lancs Mind Cheque

£2,368 has been raised for mental health charity, Lancashire Mind.

Myerscough Student Union undertook a number of different fundraising activities during the year to raise money for the organisation, who have a mission to be a passionate movement leading the mental wellbeing revolution in Lancashire. The charity campaigns to make mental wellbeing a local priority, and helps people to find the tools you need to manage, maintain and improve mental wellbeing.

The total raised is a great achievement and we’re delighted to hand over that amount. Hopefully we can beat this total and this time next year we can hand over a cheque for an even bigger amount.

A huge thanks to all those who gave up their time to raise money for these great charities, each year we ask all students what charities they would like to support, then we have a vote, so ultimately, these charities are chose by the students.’’

In previous years students have raised thousands of pounds for good causes such as Cash for Kids, Papyrus, St Catherine’s Hospice, the North West Air Ambulance, the PDSA and Street Paws.
