This weekend sees Latics get behind the Prostate Cancer UK drive with a bucket collection, but we at Wigan always go a bit further than needed so see what else is in store.

This weekend you will see a team of volunteers collecting for Prostate Cancer UK, please give as much as you can afford.

But if you forget to bring money or throwing it into a bucket is not your thing, why not look at the other events that Wigan Athletic Fans at Latics2Amsterdam are organising.

Firstly there is the Race night, which has been rescheduled for the 27th February – always great fun, and you can get involved even if you you don’t attend on the night, click here for the full details.

Secondly, The Latics2Amsterdam team are holding a Black Tie Charity Glitter Ball Dinner Dance to be held in The DW Sports Fitness Lounge at the DW Stadium, Loire Drive, Wigan on Friday April 22nd 2016.

Compering the event will be the none other than legendary radio broadcaster Allan Beswick from BBC Local Radio and entertainment on the evening will be provided by the hugely popular King Pleasure and The Biscuit Boys who are arguably the world’s greatest swing band.

The event is going to prove to be very popular for what is guaranteed to be a fantastic evening so we recommend that you book your places early to avoid disappointment.

Tickets for this event are priced at £50 per head with all monies raised going to Prostate Cancer UK.
