As Children in Need is fast approaching, we are taking a look at some of the events covered by Wigan Today over the years.
This dip into the archives produces a gallery of Wigan fund-raisers from 1996 to 2006
The postmen of Wigan have collected a staggering £1,450.00 for children In Need thanks to the generosity of the poeple from Wigan after collecting the money on their rounds. Pictured with the cheque are some of the members of the team who collected the funds. Photo: PAUL SIMPSON
