Help the Storehouse Project at Monday's match against Derby at the DW.

The Storehouse Project are grateful for the support that Wigan Athletic fans have already provided and they are excited about the Storehouse Matchday on Easter Monday!

The Storehouse van will be making an appearance near the South Stand ready to collect any items from Latics fans coming to the Derby County game. For those that don’t know much about the Storehouse Project, staff and volunteers will be around on the day to answer any questions, along with George the Monkey, their mascot!

The Storehouse Project have helped 1000’s of people across the Wigan Borough over the last few years and they want us to help them to help more in the future, by asking you to bring items to the game on Monday. Over 5% of the people the Charity helps had fled domestic abuse or human trafficking, 32% had a mental illness. Many were homeless and have nothing to furnish or take to a new home.

There are over 100 more families wanting our aid right now, as we look to help agencies such as The Brick, Welfare Support, Catch 22, Wigan Housing Solutions and Gateway Services.

YOU can help us in a few ways:

Bring any of the following to the Derby County match on 6th April 2015 - all donations go directly to helping our fellow Wiganers in need:

Non-perishable food items
Pots and pans
Tin Openers
Knives and Forks
Single and double duvets, bedding and pillow cases
Kitchen utensils
Toothbrush and toothpaste

Please see our website on how to donate money, as any cash we receive goes directly back into the project, helping us with running costs such as diesel in the van, employing our brilliant staff or helping to renovate our brand new charity shop which will be opening soon in Scholes - all contributing towards helping more people in the local Wigan and Leigh community.

If you miss us at the match, you can donate to us via the website at and can even set up a monthly donation if you'd like to!

We need donations of almost everything that you and I take for granted every day, if have any spare please bring it along to the Supporters Club Bar in the South Stand Suite at the DW Stadium prior to the Derby County game on April 6th 2015.
