The ‘Tackle Your Memory’ campaign is, in Wigan’s words, designed to: “Highlight the availability of support for people who may be concerned that they or someone they know may have a memory problem.”

Captain Sean O’Loughlin said: “We’re really lucky in Wigan to have a great local Memory Service that can see people who might have memory problems very quickly and offer them lots of support to help them to live a full and active life.

“We believe it’s really important that our fans, their friends and families know what signs to look out for and ask for help if they need it as soon as possible.”
