Prep School Raises £7295 for Josephs Goal

Birkdale Prep School have just completed a fabulous year of fund raising for Joseph's Goal, a tremendous charity based in Wigan, that promotes awareness of and funds research into a neural condition called Non-Ketotic Hyperglycinemia. The Prep School organised many activities during the year from cake sales and games in the playground to the Charities Fair and sponsored events. In fact one member of Staff walked the 100km long Race to the Stones!

An incredible £7295.56 was amassed by the end of the year. We were delighted to be joined at our cheque presentation by former Prep School pupil James Makepeace and Mrs Makepeace whose family has been affected by this condition and are strong supporters of Joseph's Goal.

Charity Co-ordinator, and our Director Studies here at the Prep School, Mr. Oakey said: "All my  thanks to the whole Birkdale Community for the very positive support of such a worthy cause. This has been a very successful year of fund raising for Joseph's Goal and we appreciate everyone’s super efforts"!
