Stratford students to host concert to smash mental illness stigma
Students from Sarah Bonnell School will be holding a concert on March 13 to raise awareness about mental illness and the stigma which still surrounds it.
The concert will be held at the school’s premises in Deanery Road, Stratford from 1pm until 1.30pm.
It will include some of the school’s most talented students singing, doing a drama piece and performing a spoken word piece.
Tickets are available to students and staff. All proceeds will go to charities that help people through mental illnesses.
