CHALLENGE Cup quarter finalists Leigh Centurions are the latest rugby league star-backers of Tackle Your Memory.

The campaign was founded by NHS mental health services to highlight the availability of support for people who may be concerned that they or someone they know may have a memory problem.

Fans will have be able to seek advice from Wigan Borough Later Life and Memory Service practitioners when the Centurions take on Doncaster on May 18.

Rob Parker, Club Manager said: “On match day, please take the opportunity to speak to the health professionals who will be at the ground if you are worried you or someone you may know has memory problems.

“They can tell you about free NHS memory services that you can access locally which promote choice and support healthy, independent living.”
