|Charity Ball to celebrate sporting success
Celebrate Wigan Borough’s sporting achievements and raise money for charity by coming along to a Charity Ball.
The Mayor’s Charity Ball takes place on Friday 11 October at Haigh Hall and is being hosted by the Mayor of Wigan Borough, Councillor Billy Rotherham.
It is being held for the Mayor’s 2013/2014 charity ‘Heartbeat 2 Appeal’, which raises funds for the Coronary Care Unit at Wigan Infirmary.
It promises to be a glittering and enjoyable night, as guests will be treated to a drink on arrival, a three course meal followed by coffee and mints, entertainment provided by singer and DJ Peter D Hill and an auction, with items including an iPad on offer.
The Ball will have a sporting theme and celebrate the success of the borough’s sports teams, Wigan Athletic, Leigh Centurions and Wigan Warriors, who have all enjoyed a year to remember after their victories in the FA Cup, the Northern Rail Cup and the Challenge Cup finals.
The Mayor of Wigan Borough, Councillor Billy Rotherham, said: The Mayor’s Charity Ball is always one of the highlights of the year and I am really looking forward to it.
It has been a very special year in Wigan Borough, and it is only right we celebrate all of our sporting achievements. The room will be dressed in the colours of the borough’s sports teams and guests can join in with celebrating their successes by wearing red, blue or white if they want to. I hope members of the local community can come along as it will be a truly fantastic evening and all the money raised will be going to a very worthy cause.
The ball starts at 7pm and ends at 1am. Tickets cost £35 per person and the dress code is black-tie. If you would like to get tickets for the ball, contact Jo O’Connor on 01942 404149 or J.O’Connor@wigan.gov.uk.
