In order to give the town centres and their visitors a break, one week out of six will usually be left free and no collectors / fundraisers will be allowed in Wigan or Leigh town centres during that period (street collections only). We will therefore not consider applications or requests for either area during the following weeks:

  • 9th September to 15th September 2019
  • 21st October to 27th October 2019
  • 2nd December to 8th December 2019
