The St Paul’s Charities Committee and Medical Society joined forces today to commemorate the British Heart Foundation’s disease awareness day called Red Day. Many students came into school wearing as much red as possible, and they raised £197.58 in support of the British Heart Foundation. The Med Soc discussed various heart conditions, placing a particular emphasis on children’s diseases. They talked about symptoms, treatments and possible cures, as well as how the diseases affect people’s daily lives. However, not all of these diseases do have cures, which emphasised the importance of raising awareness and fundraising for research that could potentially save lives.
