Lancashire Post staff wore football tops for Joseph's Goal
Staff at Lancashire Post got into the spirit of the World Cup by swapping their shirt and ties for football tops.
The team raised Â£160 for Joseph’s Goal, to fund research into NKH (Non-Ketotic Hyperglycinemia), a very rare life-limiting genetic disorder.The charity was set up by Paul Kendrick, sports reporter at the Lancashire Post’s sister paper Wigan Post, after his nine-year-old son Joseph was born with the condition.
Peter Storey, Johnston Press North West Sports Editor said: "The idea originally came from our Burnley reporter Chris Boden so all it took was a bit of rallying round the Lancashire Post office. Members of the editorial and newspaper sales staff have managed to raise Â£160 so far for a charity which is close to our hearts.
"The Wigan Post is holding a similar event next week and hopefully we can raise even more funds for Joseph's Goal."
