    All under 18 ticket money for our Johnstone’s Paint Trophy fixture with Blackpool FC next Tuesday will be donated to Amelia Morris’ Christmas Fund.
    Amelia, from Beech Hill, is two-year old who has Tay Sachs disease, a rare genetic disorder that causes progressive damage to the nervous system and affects just one in every 320,000 babies in the UK.
    Amelia is not expected to live much beyond Christmas unfortunately and her parents Whitney and Jonathan are hoping to raise enough money to decorate their house with festive lights and give little Amelia a Christmas to remember.
    David Sharpe wants to make sure that every pound the club receive for Under 18 supporters will go to Amelia’s fund.
    “I read about Amelia’s story in the press,” he said, “and like everyone was moved by it. The family live less than a mile from the DW Stadium, so it seems the right thing to do to help someone in our local community who is undergoing such a tough time. It’s the least we can do.
    “Hopefully, when the fans see that their money will be going to such a worthy cause, they will come along to support the team, but more importantly to support Amelia and her family. It’s the least we can do, hopefully we can the family the Christmas they deserve.”

    Another reason to get down there on Tuesday and another great gesture on top of the ones already put forward by Latics for this fixture.
    Proud to be a Wigan Athletic supporter.

    Good post 35, not heard of this previously. Let’s hope we can raise a fair bit fun for her!
