Teachers raise cash for MND

Staff from Ormsgill School were delighted to help raise £700 in memory of a colleague who died from Motor Neurone Disease.

Assistant Headteacher Dawn Hubbold worked at the school for 17 years and was the school’s special educational needs and disabilities coordinator. She died earlier this year just months after being diagnosed with MND.

Mike Wilkinson, who is a supply teacher and worked alongside Dawn at the school, organised a comedy night at Cartmel Village Hall in August to raise money for the charity.

Jessica Corless was among the staff supporting the event and said it had been a perfect tribute.

“Dawn was such a funny person and we were always giggling,” she said. “She and her husband Pete went to see one of Mike’s stand-up comedy shows a few years ago at the Duke of Edinburgh so it seemed fitting to raise money doing something that she enjoyed.

“She was a huge part of our daily lives and we miss her every day. It is great that people are continuing to remember the impact she had on the whole community by raising money for a charity that helped her and her family.”
