Wigan Rotary Club President Eunice Smethurst said: “In these difficult times when we are all having to tighten our belts, I am sure there are local groups in the Wigan area who could really use a donation of a few hundred pounds to help them with a project or event they wish to undertake.

"At the last event twelve groups were successful, but unfortunately a number of applications had to be declined.”

President Smethurst added: “We do not expect the presentation to come from a person trained in public speaking, we want to hear from members of the group who are looking for the money.

"In 2023 groups ranged from environment to mother and toddler entered ‘the Den’ and came away with a donation.”

More information is available at www.wiganrotary.co.uk or by calling 07813 471000.

The closing date for entries is March 5.
