We've joined up with the Striker Boy campaign and several other edtech providers to help sponsor the #EduFootyAid event. This special charity football event will feature a football match between two teams of primary school teachers as part of a community day at Lanchester Primary School in Durham on Saturday the 6th of October.
The Striker Boy campaign which was set up in memory of former primary school teacher Jonny Zucker, who sadly took his own life in 2016. Mental health is a key concern for the education sector, particularly primary education, with rates of suicide amongst primary school teachers nearly double the national average.
The event is aiming to raise £3,000 for the charity Mind, who provide help and support to empower anybody experiencing a mental health problem.
We would really appreciate any support you can offer for this event. If you would like to attend, please register your interest on the Striker Boy campaign Facebook page.
