July Fundraiser of the Month - The Cooling family


For our 40th anniversary this year, we have decided to have a 'Fundraiser of the Month' throughout the year. This month, we have the Cooling family. Richard, brother to Jonathan, shares his story.

"Five years ago in 2017, Jonathan was diagnosed with the genetic disorder MPS III Sanfilippo. We have become aware of the MPS Society and the amazing work they do during that time.

As a thank you for the support they offer, we try to do some form of yearly fundraising event. In 2019 we completed a 100km walk, in 2020 we completed a 100k bike ride and last year we ran a 12-hour football match.

This year, we're going to do it again and hopefully raise some even more vital funds for an incredible charity."

In the picture is Jonathan with his two brothers Richard and Kenny, his mum Helen and his dad Steve.

At the MPS Society, we’d like to say a huge thank you to the Cooling family for their support!
