Beat the Blues; Wear Yellow!

Throughout Winter 2019

During Winter 2019, we are asking all schools in the mid-Essex area to ‘Beat the Blues and Wear Yellow’!

The idea is simple! All students and teachers are asked to wear something yellow on a chosen day and donate £2 each to Mid and North East Essex Mind.

If your school would like to support Mid and North East Essex Mind by taking part in ‘Beat the Blues and Wear Yellow’ in January, simply send our fundraising team an email with the name and contact details of the school. We will then send you out your Beat the Blues fundraising pack in the post!
