About us

DID YOU KNOW THAT?

Wigan Rotary Club was formed in 1924. The Club has around 50 members and this year’s President is John Wright. The club’s priority continues to be to provide support for local community and voluntary groups, however it does provide financial assistance to organisations involved in humanitarian work overseas.

WIGAN & LEIGH HOSPICE

Through the incredible support of the community, medical, religious, health and political bodies the Rotary Club raised £86,000 (today equivalent to over £500,000) to establish the first hospice in Poolstock. It opened in 1983.

AGE UK WIGAN BOROUGH

In 1995 three members of the Rotary Club formed Age Concern Wigan Borough (now renamed Age UK Wigan Borough) this provides a wide range of services for the elderly throughout the borough. It has offices in Market Street and Pennyhurst Mill Wigan and newly opened charity shop in Standishgate.

RUN 4 A LIFE

This 5Km fun run event started in 2004 held at the DW Stadium and in the ten years it ran raised the equivalent of £100,000 for men’s cancer research, in later years supporting the local Wigan charity Men Matters Appeal.

JUNIOR SPEAKS & YOUTH SPEAKS

This is a public speaking competition involving all the high schools and the majority of the junior schools in Wigan, and has grown in success over the last few years.

FATHER CHRISTMAS & HIS SLEIGH

December is the clubs major fund raising month when Santa and his sleigh tour the district. Thanks to the Wigan public’s generosity it raised over £12000 last December which will be donated to charities and voluntary organisations both locally and overseas
