National Volunteers Week

A celebration event thanked the hundreds of volunteers who work with leisure and culture provider WLCT to make a difference in their communities.

The event at Wigan Library, which marked the end of National Volunteer Week, recognised the efforts of more than 660 volunteers who give over 30,000 hours of their free time every year.

Cllr Paul Kenny attended the event to speak to attendees. Paul said, “Volunteering brings huge benefits to those who volunteer – from learning new skills to making new friends - as well as making a real difference in our local communities. I would ask people to think about how they can become more active in their community, give something back, and support the Wigan Deal.”

  1. If walh take over the site, will they guarantee that nobody with an asbo will be allowed to live there? i've nothing against anybody who rents, but as we have seen in other areas, people have been moved off one estate because of their anti social behaviour only to continue it at their new address, which is merely moving the problem somewhere else, and is the last thing anybody wants
