The Wigan Rotary Club Dragons Den event is still open for applications from local charities or community groups.
Following the success of the last few years, local groups based in postcode areas WN1, WN3, WN5, WN6 are invited to submit their request. Following initial consideration those groups selected will be invited to put their case to ‘the dragons’ in a three minute presentation.
Wigan Rotary Club President Gwyneth Millard said ‘ In these difficult times when we are all having to tighten our belts, I 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. Last year twelve groups were successful, but the dragons unfortunately had to decline a number of applications.’
Bids of up to £500 can be considered and Gwyneth continued ‘ We don’t 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. Last years groups ranging from Over 60’s to mother and toddler entered ‘the den’ and came away with a donation.’
Full details and an application form are available either by going to the website www.wiganrotaryclub.org.uk or by ringing 07813 471000.
The closing date for entries is 29th April
