Wigan Rotary Club is again looking to donate cash to local community groups with a ‘Dragons Den’ style event. Following the success of the last few years, local groups based in postcode areas WN1, WN3, WN5, WN6 are invited to submit their request. Then after initial consideration those groups selected will be invited to put their case to ‘The Dragons’ in a three minute presentation.
Wigan Rotary Club President Mervyn Reeves said ‘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”.
Bids from a few hundred pounds up to £1000 can be considered and Mervyn said ‘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 year groups, ranging from a Lipreading Group, to a Toddler and Nursery Group entered “The Den” and came away with a donation.’
Full details and an application form to download are available by going to the website www.wiganrotaryclub.org.uk or by ringing Phil Hirst on 07813 471000. The closing date for entries is 17th April 2020.
