Student supports Mind Charity and is set for a career as a mental nurse

Running a mile each day in all weathers, Sarah Manning has raised £363 for Mind, the charity that supports people who are experiencing problems with their mental health.

Sarah, 15, and a Year 10 student at Richmond School and Sixth Form College, ran a mile each day, over 27 consecutive days, to highlight the percentage of university students who report a mental health concern.  At 27%, this is a worrying statistic and represents a problem that is five times greater today than it was ten years ago, a figure that is anticipated to have increased further during the pandemic.
