A fresh appeal has been made to community groups, sports clubs and charities from across the borough to showcase their work and raise money at a now traditional event in Wigan town centre.

Wigan Rotary Club is inviting representatives from various organisations to share about the difference they make at its annual community day on Standishgate and Market Place on Saturday July 8.

What will be the 10th such event enables these groups to recruit new members and enhance their profile while also offering the opportunity to raise cash for their good cause.

A spokesperson said: “All that is asked of you is that you turn up and observe a few simple rules.

"You should register at the Standishgate entrance and take any vehicles away before 10am when the barriers go up. They go down at 4 pm.

“You must not do anything illegal or which offends, create a noise that spoils it for others, sell hot food, use gas cylinders or similar apparatus nor leave rubbish behind.

"The event will comply with all regulations and local authority recommendations.”
