On Friday 15th October, the whole of Frensham walked in aid of two charities, with the goal of reaching £8,000. The students and staff walked from the main Frensham campus, to the Frensham Great Pond and back again, with some candy floss and ice cream as a treat upon their return.
HAPPY SPACE UK
Happy Space UK is a preventative mental wellbeing charity. They provide students with a wellbeing toolkit in order to help protect the minds of a future generation. They achieve this predominantly by delivering guidebooks to students in transitional stages and by providing talks for students. They also partner with other mental health service providers, host events and carry out in-house research. Happy Space was founded by some OFs, Nader Dehdashti , Tegan Creedy and Hugo Layard Horsfall who have been best friends since meeting at Frensham age 11. Founder Nader says "Happy Space was born because as students, we realised how lucky we were to be at a school as progressive as Frensham and we wanted to make sure schools across the country were given thier children the same love and protection we were shown."
MALAWI SCHOOLS TRUST
We believe every child in Malawi should have an education.
MST work carefully in partnership with local communities on projects that make this possible. One school at a time.
Learning isn’t really possible if you don’t have enough to eat or drink. Or if you don’t feel safe.
They take a wide view of what it means to support education. If basic needs aren’t being met - especially for children - they look to see if they can be improved.
