Ark Blacklands Primary Academy took part in a ‘Wear a Hat to School Day’ for St Mungo’s Broadway homeless charity.

The Pupil Council organised the event and a total of £276.29 was raised.

St Mungo’s Broadway helps people recover from the issues that create homelessness. It provides a bed and support to more than 2,500 people a night who are either homeless or at risk, and work to prevent homelessness, helping about 25,000 people a year.

St Mungo’s Broadway was formed in April 2014 by the merger of two homelessness charities; St Mungo’s and Broadway.

St Mungo’s began helping people sleeping rough off the streets in 1969.
