SuperLeigh are proud to announce that through the efforts of our Assistant Manager Johnny Simpkin we have been able to donate over £700.00 to these two local charities. Johnny completed the Tatton Park 10k event in an amazing 57mins 42secs. SuperLeigh Manager Christine Brown said ‘We are all so proud of Johnny! he has come a long way and the hard work he has put into training for this event despite set backs along the way is a testament to his hard work and determination in the face of adversity.’ Johnny himself commented ‘I would never had believed 12 months ago if someone had said this time next year your going to run a 10k!! It’s a massive honour for me not only to represent SuperLeigh in doing this but also helping two organisations that are very close to our hearts. I have gained inspiration from them both in seeing how they operate with passion and commitment in helping individuals from a variety of both backgrounds and age groups. I hope what we have done can bring their organisations into the spotlight and propel the people of our great town of Leigh to support them in their endeavours.’ We would like to express our heartfelt thanks to each and every one of you who sponsored Johnny to complete this event, once again without your help SuperLeigh would not be the success it is without you. Johnny is pictured handing over a cheque for £370.75 to Pam Gillighan from Compassion In Action and Leigh Community trust employee and SuperLeigh Ambassador Micky Higham along with former Centurion Mick Nanyn.
SuperLeigh are proud to announce that Leigh legend and former international Micky Higham has become their new ambassador. Micky joined SuperLeigh Manager and Christine Brown and Assistant Manager Johnny Simpkin today visiting local charity Compassion In Action (CIA) today to donate to their Christmas toy appeal. CIA have been focusing on the needs of vulnerable individuals who may be feeling isolated and socially excluded since it conception in 2006. Their aim is to provide a place where these individuals can come together and join in with activities that will help them to build the skills and confidence to reintegrate back into the community.
Christine Brown said “We have supported them (CIA) for a few years now and the work they do in our local community is abundant to see. They deal with a kaleidoscope of individuals from young carers to recovering addicts and it’s a pleasure to be involved with them. SuperLeigh are primarily a fund raising arm for Leigh Centurions but we are also focused on giving back to the community, without whom we would cease to be. We asked Micky to come on board as our ambassador and he jumped at the chance.”
Higham added “For me to be associated with SuperLeigh is a huge honour. They where here at the club when I started out on my career and they are still here now and that is testament to the fantastic work they do. Christine invited me to come along and see what Compassion In Action was all about and believe me I have just had my eyes opened! After speaking to founder Pam Gilligan it is clear to me that they are a vital part of this town and the work they do is vital in bringing the people of Leigh together standing shoulder to shoulder regardless of background or ability.”
Anyone wishing to donate a toy or gift to the appeal can do so by dropping off their donation at the ticket office before the 8th December on Monday to Friday between 9am and 4pm or Saturday Between 9am and 12 noon.
