Every year schools and companies throughout the country are encouraged to partake in what has become Goal’s flagship fundraising campaign.

John Burns, who works in the Biochemistry Department and organised the event, explained why he encouraged so many staff members to participate this year, “Goal does amazing work throughout the developing world which saves lives on a daily basis. As healthcare workers we recognize their dedication and wanted to show solidarity in the work they do”, said Mr. Burns.
