Wife of former skipper to climb Kilimanjaro in memory of a dear friend

Latics Football Operations Manager, and former skipper, Matt Jakcson has urged supporters to give generously as his wife, Julie, embarks on a sponsored climb of Mount Kilimanjaro to raise funds for the Marie Curie Cancer Care – in memory of her best friend Mandy.

Mandy sadly passed away in September 2012 and members of the the Jackson family will be holding a bucket collection around the DW Stadium before our match against Watford this weekend. 

Look out for Matt, Julie and other members of the Jackson family at the game - all donations, big or small, will be gratefully received.

You can read more about Julie’s challenge in the matchday programme which will be available from programme sellers around the ground this Saturday.
