Bainbridge, Askrigg and West Burton children go orange for charity

Children and staff of Bainbridge, Askrigg and West Burton primary schools have taken on the challenge to Go Orange for Muscular Dystrophy UK.

For the second year running BAWB schools worked together to raise money for the charity, this year collecting a total of £245.

Ruby Cumpstone-Steward, one of the federation’s year six pupils who organised the fundraiser was delighted with the amount.

In a video shared to thank all who supported the event, she said “it proved how much we can do if we all work together”.

Ruby was Inspired by her cousin Daniel, who was diagnosed with muscular dystrophy when he was just three years old.

Muscular dystrophy is a muscle-wasting condition that affects 700,000 people in the UK and heartbreakingly there is currently no cure.

Muscular Dystrophy UK work to raise funds for medical research that one day will bring real change for the condition the families affected by it.
