Dealership offers luxury motoring experience prize for charity ball

A leading motor group has pledged to help raise funds for children suffering from a rare life-limiting genetic disorder.

Lookers Volkswagen North West is supporting a glittering charity ball in aid of Joseph’s Goal on Saturday 22nd March at Wigan’s DW Stadium.

Staff from the group’s three dealerships – Blackpool, Preston and Blackburn – will attend the event and the company has donated the use of a Volkswagen Golf or Beetle Cabriolet over a weekend as an auction prize.

Jon Williams, regional brand director for Lookers Volkswagen North West, said: “As a successful regional business, we feel it is important to give something back to our community, so we are honoured to be able to support the Joseph’s Goal charity ball.

“We are sponsoring two tables of guests at the event and also offering a weekend of luxury motoring in one of our most popular cars as a prize. The winner will be able to choose between a Golf or Beetle Cabriolet, so we hope it helps to raise a lot of money for this very worthy cause.”

Joseph’s Goal was set up in the name of four-year-old Joseph Kendrick who suffers from NKH (Non-Ketotic Hyperglycinemia), a very rare life-limiting genetic disorder that severely affects his development.

The charity aims to raise awareness of the condition and funds for research into better treatments and, ultimately, a cure.

The ‘Twinkle like a star’ charity ball will include a raffle, auction, entertainment and a disco. The compere for the evening is Radio 5 Live’s George Riley, and performers include local operatic star Laurie Ashworth. Tickets are £50 each. For more details visit

Guests will also have chance for photographs with the FA Cup and Rugby League’s Challenge Cup and SuperLeague Trophy.

Lookers Volkswagen North West operates dealerships at Ashworth Road, Blackpool, Trident Way in Blackburn and Blackpool Road, Preston, all offering new and approved used car sales and a comprehensive after-sales service using genuine Volkswagen parts.
