Year 8 Volunteen Wiser Programme at Driffield School and Sixth Form

As part of the last cohort of Volunteen, ‘Wiser Programme’ students raised £170 for the fantastic charity Health Stars.

Health Stars is a local charity that works in partnership with the Humber Teaching NHS Foundation Trust to enhance the community and mental health services provided to over 800,000 people living in our service area. Health Stars rely on the support of businesses and community groups. Generous donations and wonderful fundraising efforts help them improve services for patients and their loved ones who are looked after by the amazing staff who work for Humber Teaching NHS Foundation Trust.

Health Stars contributes to a thriving healthcare environment for NHS teams and their patients, by embracing generosity and investing in innovation. They promote the development of exceptional healthcare, which goes above and beyond NHS core services, through the investment in people; environments; resources; training and research.
