A CHARITY night is being staged at Bickershaw Labour Club to boost the Joining Jack appeal.

Wigan Warriors players will be among the guests at the event which will feature music, vocalists, food and an auction at the event which organiser Martin Dearnley hopes will raise £4,000 towards the fight to find a cure for Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy.

Former Wigan RLFC player Andy John's young son, Jack, suffers from DMD which is a progressive muscle wasting condition.

The Bickershaw event is on Friday, March 8. If you would like tickets or wish to donate prizes for the draw which include a hotel stay, food and drink hampers, call Martin on 07746 888814.
