WARRIORS stars Pat Richards and Iain Thornley popped in to Heinz in Kitt Green to meet staff ahead of the Warriors’ Heritage Day fixture against Huddersfield Giants last weekend.
Heinz Big Soup were executive match sponsor for the top of the table clash and staff snapped-up discount tickets as part of the firm’s long-standing relationship with the club.
Some of the proceeds from the tickets will go to the Wigan Warriors Community Foundation and Wigan and Leigh Hospice.
Staff and patients from the hospice were also in attendance as guests of Heinz Big Soup.
Wigan Warriors marketing executive Paul MacLeod said: “The Wigan club has a unique history which is unrivalled by any other rugby club.
“Heritage Day allows us to celebrate this history and show our appreciation for the players who have contributed to making Wigan Warriors the biggest name in rugby league.”
