Bridgewater family pulls together for MND Association
On Friday 2nd November 2018, Prep School teachers and pupils donned pyjamas and wellies before setting off on a sponsored fun run to raise money for the Motor Neurone Disease Association.
The charity focuses on care, research and campaigning for the rapidly progressing disease that affects the brain and spinal cord. According to statistics, up to 5,000 adults in the UK are fighting MND at any one time and tragically, there is no cure.
The illness has particular significance for Bridgewater, as a family within the school are sadly enduring the heartbreak that this disease brings.
Headmistress, Mrs Nairn, said: “We are such a close knit school and community that we simply had to show our support and our extended Bridgewater family has been, once again, incredibly generous with their donations.”
The event has now raised an incredible £3,100.
