The Dave Hodgson Memorial

A few of us across the Wigan Athletic community thought it would be a good idea to set up a page in honour of Dave where Latics fans can make a donation to Cancer Research in Dave’s memory. You can view the page here


Dave touched the hearts of many of us as Latics fans across the world and this represents an opportunity for those who expressed a wish to donate some money to charity in his honour.


There is no obligation or pressure to donate but if you wish to leave a small donation – anything from £1 upwards and leave a message please feel free to do so and we will again show what the Wigan Athletic family is all about.


We appreciate that money is tight especially at this time of year so we will keep the page open for a month or two and all donations are welcome no matter how small with all monies raised being passed directly to Cancer Research so that others may benefit in future.


Many thanks


The “Latics United Community”


Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving – they’ll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they’ll send your money directly to the charity and make sure Gift Aid is reclaimed on every eligible donation by a UK taxpayer. So it’s the most efficient way to donate – I raise more, whilst saving time and cutting costs for the charity.


Here is the link again if you wish to make a donation:
