Children charity’s urgent appeal

A CHARITY which gives vital aid to bereaved Wigan children is urging folk to attend one of its biggest fund-raisers in the calendar.

Last year more than 400 people went to the Me 2 You evening, but with only two-and-a-half weeks to go to this year’s event they have only sold half that number of tickets.

Co-ordinator Kelly Willison today said they needed a last minute push to make the entertaining evening at Hindley’s Monaco Ballroom a real success.

The organisers are also looking for individuals and businesses to come forward with auction and raffle prizes.

The £10 tickets include a buffet and entertainment comprising three singers.

Kelly said: “We had a fantastic annual charity evening last year but I have to admit that we are struggling to sell as many tickets this year.

“Me 2 You is a charity which supports children in Wigan who have lost a loved one, whether that be a parent or sibling. We take them to special camps and support them. It is all run by volunteers.

“As well as selling tickets we are also on the look-out for more auction and raffle prizes. These can really give the event an extra lift so if any businesses or individuals are able to spare as something we would be very grateful.”
