Rotary Club’s job hunt

WIGAN Rotary Club are hoping to raise cash through a Dragons’ Den style event.

Following the success of last year’s event, local groups based in postcode areas WN1, WN3, WN5 and WN6 are invited to submit their request. Following initial consideration those groups selected will be invited to put their case in front of ‘the dragons’ in a three minute presentation at an event in June.

Wigan Rotary Club President John Walls said: “In these difficult financial times when we all have to tighten our belts, I am sure there are local groups in the Wigan area who would greatly benefit from a donation of a few hundred pounds to help them with a project or an event.

“Last year 13 groups were successful, but the dragons did decline several applications.”
