Focus Insolvency Group are delighted to announce that they have chosen to support the Wigan based charity ‘Joining Jack’ as part of their continuing charity work in the coming year.

Each year Focus Insolvency Group chooses a local charity to get behind by raising awareness and money for their cause. Previous events have involved taking part in the Great Manchester Run and the X-runner Wild Thing obstacle course and mud run.

Joining Jack was set up by former Wigan Warrior Andy Johnson and his wife Alex in aid of their son Jack who suffers from Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD), a rare and incurable muscle wasting condition. The charity began in May this year to raise awareness and fund research to find a cure.

Anthony Fisher, Managing Director of Focus Insolvency Group met the Joining Jack team at this year’s Wigan Business Expo. Anthony said, ‘It was great to meet the Joining Jack team supported by Andy’s fellow Wigan Warriors legend Jason Robinson at the Business Expo. The Joining Jack campaign has raised a lot of awareness in our area and I want us to help next year with this most worthy cause’

Andy Johnson, founder of Joining Jack said of the announcement,

“I’m incredibly grateful to hear of the support Focus Insolvency Group have offered to give us as their charity of the year 2013. We really appreciate businesses choosing to help Joining Jack. As a family we had no choice, we could not sit back and allow this terrible condition destroy the life of our son but one of the things that has really moved us is the willingness of other people to put their hands up and say that they are willing to join our fight. Thank you.”

Focus Insolvency Group leaves behind an amazing and successful year of support for their charity of 2012, Derian House Children’s Hospice.
