The Club is committed to helping many local charities and good causes.
In addition the Club allows a number of charity collections to take place at selected home games throughout the season. The Club supports various charitable causes with donations of tickets and signed merchandise and such commitments are in addition to our daily work with the Wigan Athletic Community Trust.
The Club will endeavour to assist charitable organizations where possible, and all requests will be judged on their individual merit.
All requests should fall in the following criteria to be considered:
- be located in the North West; and
- from a local registered charity; or
- from a local community organisation.
Due to the high volume of requests we receive each week from charitable organisations, we require six weeks notice in advance of an event taking place. We will endeavour to respond to all requests within 14 days.
All charitable requests must be made in writing to Charities Co-Ordinator, Wigan Athletic, DW Stadium, Loire Drive, Wigan, WN5 0UZ. Applications are no longer accepted via email.
