Wigan pioneer Never Watch Alone initiative
Posted on 27th October 2009
It’s not very often we write about men with odd shaped balls but we’re willing to make the odd exception when it’s for a good cause – and the National Association of Disabled Supporters’ involvement with rugby league’s Wigan Warriors certainly falls into that category.
Back in January we explained how the Never Watch Alone initiative would allow fans with disabilities to attend their team’s matches through a network of volunteers built up in Wigan.
This means supporters of Wigan Athletic or Warriors with learning disabilities can go to games with a fellow fan rather than a professional carer.
Never Watch Alone’s latest signing is Phil Clarke, the ex-Wigan and Great Britain rugby league star, who has been unveiled as an ambassador for the project’s work.
The folk at Never Watch Alone are always keen to hear from new volunteers.
