Friday night saw the Wigan Warriors Community Foundations 3rd annual charity Sportsman’s Dinner down at the DW Stadium.
A sell out event, Ben Flower, Steve Hampson and Nicky Kiss joined guests for a night of top food, drink, company and laughter.
The evening not only recognised the hard work and dedication of the Wigan Warriors Community Foundation, but also rewarded the Borough’s coaches, referees, volunteers, sports achievers, teams, clubs and unsung heroes for their truly dedicated commitment to sport in the borough.
On behalf of the Wigan Warriors Community Foundation and the Wigan Referee’s Society, may we thank all the guests and sponsors for supporting the evening, and helping to raise vital funds for a fantastic cause in the Wigan borough.
