As has been well publicised, Wigan Athletic fans a right behind the Emma Hoolin appeal and as the Walk for Emma event approaches we can announce that Cockney Latic users/readers/posters can win a terrific prize whilst raising money for a great cause.

The Walk for Emma is taking place on February 11th where we will be walking from Wigan to the Reebok Stadium where the Latics will be taking on Bolton Wanderers.

For any Cockney Latic posters on the message board, a very special prize is being put up for the best fancy dressed walker.

I will post this up on the message board to see if we do a common theme for the fancy dress, like ‘animals’ or ‘Cockney Latics’ or ‘19780’s footballers’ – any suggestions we can vote on and use as the theme for the day.

The winner of the ‘Fancy Dress Competition’ will win a meal for two at Rigallettos, and will be chosen by the organisers. So if you haven’t registered already and are interested, or want to find out more information CLICK HERE
