Award for big-hearted Holly

Holly with her awardA big-hearted student had an end-of-term assembly to remember when she was rewarded for her charity work.

Holly Major (13) organised a Superhero Family Fun Run at our school in September to raise money for Oxfordshire Mind. The event proved so successful that more than £2,000 was donated to the charity.

At our last school assembly before the holidays, she was presented with a Schools Award, funded by the Berkshire Masonic Charity, to commend her for her commitment to the fundraiser.

Holly’s uncle lost his life last Christmas Day as a result of mental health issues and she decided to help the local branch of Mind with a fun run on his birthday, September 15, to remember him and raise awareness of the problem.

Speaking of her uncle’s loss, Holly said: “It has hurt me and opened my eyes and made me realise how much mental health affects people and really needs to be taken care of. I don’t want any other family to suffer the way our family has suffered.”

Having raised such a great amount for the charity, we decided to nominate her for recognition from the Berkshire Masonic School Charity Award.

Holly has used her energies for a positive outcome and she put a huge amount of effort into organising the fun run to raise money for Mind. We are really proud of all she has done and were delighted to discover she had been chosen for an award.

The award includes a £50 charity donation for Mind, a £25 Amazon voucher for Holly along with a certificate outlining her achievement.
