The Wigan Warriors Community Foundation are urging all supporters of the club to raise vital funds for the Community Foundation this Christmas, at no cost to themselves.
Today, Monday 30th November is traditionally the busiest day on the internet with people buying Christmas presents so why not join easyfundraising and the Club will also benefit
The Foundation, a registered Charity (no. 1129008), has registered on www.easyfundraising.org.uk which provides a FREE fundraising service for charities or community groups when you shop online.
Warriors fans can choose from over 2000 of the UK's best-known retailers including many popular names such as Amazon, Next, Argos, John Lewis and HMV, and when you shop using the links on the site up to 15% from every purchase you make is donated to the cause you choose to nominate. Many of the retailers also have special offers only available on easyfundraising.org.uk.
All you have to do is register on the site, enter the Wigan Warriors Community Foundation as your chosen charity and that’s it. It doesn’t cost you anything and you can shop as you normally would online.
Use the links on the site to visit the online store of the shop you are using to purchase your Christmas presents, and at no extra cost you’ll be supporting the work of the Warriors Foundation, who last year delivered coaching sessions to in excess of 19,500 young people.
Speaking about the initiative, Foundation Manager Mike Watson said,
"We know that the Warriors fans are keen to help develop the Community Foundation and www.easyfundraising.org.uk allows them to do just that. In the run up to Christmas many millions of pounds will be spent online, and anyone who selects the Wigan Warriors Community Foundation as their chosen charity will help us deliver our service to as many youngsters in the area as possible."
