Old Cranbrookian holds 12 hour ‘Buskathon’
Sam Easton, Class of 2017, held a 12-hour ‘buskathon’ to help raise funds for Mind UK which is a charity close to his heart. Please read below for full details.
“My name is Sam Easton and earlier this year, Charles Young, the father of three Old Cranbrookians (Jonny, Dave & Francesca) lost his battle with depression.
To celebrate his life and spread awareness for those suffering from mental health issues, on Saturday 2nd September 2017, I held a 12 hour ‘buskathon’ in Tunbridge Wells Town Centre with all proceeds and donations going to Mind UK. I also launched a Just Giving page which you are still able to donate to – https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/twellsbuskathon . Alternatively, you can text BUSK62 and your donation to 70070. Both of these channels will be open for at least another month to accept donations. So far I have managed to raise just over £3,000.
If you are able to donate, this is a wonderful cause and all the money will go towards helping all those suffering from mental health issues and their families to get the support that they need.”
Well done Sam, this is a fantastic achievement.
