LATICS AND MANCHESTER CITY FANS ENCOURAGED TO SUPPORT THE BRICK AT MONDAY’S FA CUP MEETING

16 February 2018

The Brick support over 400 people across the Wigan borough each month, offering them food, shelter and training.

  • The Brick help people who are homeless or living in poverty.
  • Volunteers from the charity will be bucket collecting on the night.
  • DW Stadium Sleepout to be held on Friday 6th April 2018.

Wigan Athletic and Manchester City fans are urged to join forces on Monday evening to show their support for the club’s official charity of the season.

Representatives from The Brick, a Wigan based charity who help people who are homeless or living in poverty to rebuild their lives, will be bucket collecting ahead of the game while raising awareness of their DW Stadium Sleepout which is to be held on Friday 6th April 2018.

The charity are hoping for 200 people to fill the south stand concourse on the night of the Sleepout to raise vital funds and to help change the lives of the people that it is a reality for.

Supporters are also encouraged to bring food and toiletries with them to the game to donate to The Brick’s collection point in the Family Zone underneath the East Stand.

Since the launch of the year-long partnership at the start of the 2017/18 campaign, Latics fans have helped to raise thousands of pounds for the charity that support over 400 people across the Wigan borough each month, offering them food, shelter and training.

Janet Mitchell, Fundraising and Business Engagement Manager for The Brick, said: “Homelessness is a priority across Greater Manchester and we’d ask both sets of fans to support us on Monday to help us make a difference and to ensure nobody in our community gets left behind.

She added: “We’ve been overwhelmed by the support we’ve received from the club this season and look forward to meeting even more fans at the game against Manchester City. It’s an honour for us to be involved and we’re so grateful for the opportunity.”
