Wigston football club set up fundraising day

By Charlie Ramshall

Wigston Willows and the Wigston community have come together to help raise money for the football club.

The event is taking place on Sunday, May 28, and begins at midday.

There is going to be a match featuring girls, and then another match featuring the boys too and people can donate to feature in the match with all proceeds going back into the club.

Manager of one of the Under-11 teams, Nathan Merriman, said: “It’s been in the works for a few months, we wanted to do something with the time off.”

There will also be a raffle during the day and all donations made will help the club to buy new equipment or kits for the teams.

Businesses within Wigston have helped with raffle prizes and members of the community have donated around £600 from raffle tickets.

The club wants to gauge interest from the community as they want to do something bigger next year.

The money that is raised from the day will be distributed by the chairman to various sections throughout the club.
