CAMBRIA Automobiles has announced a decision to support charity, Joining Jack, by looking into ways to help provide for the mobility needs of children with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD).
Based in Wigan, Joining Jack is a charity founded by Andy and Alex Johnson after their son, Jack, was diagnosed with DMD. DMD is a terminal illness, which weakens muscles and causes paralysis and breathing difficulties. The disease usually develops before the age of five. The charity aims to raise money to fund research into finding a cure for the condition.
They discussed ways in which the dealer group could support DMD sufferers and their mobility requirements, as well as methods of raising funds for the cause.
Jack got the opportunity sit in the dealership’s Aston Martin range and was even taken for a special test drive in a DB11. Lavery said that he was privileged to meet Jack, describing him as “a bubbly and vibrant young man who is very positive in his outlook”.
He added: “I am delighted to announce that Cambria is also Joining Jack by providing a car that can accommodate Jack’s wheelchair.
“Andy and Alex are doing everything they can to help Jack and other children like him, and we are thrilled to be able to support them and the charity in their quest.”
