Actor Maxine Peake Supports Wish For Wigan Campaign

We are delighted to have actor, director and writer Maxine Peake support our Wish For Wigan Christmas campaign.

This Christmas is likely to be a very different kind of Christmas for everybody, especially those facing poverty and hardship in our local communities. Many are facing impossible decisions and are having to choose between heating their homes or feeding their children.

Your donation will not just be giving someone a Christmas meal, you will also be providing warmth, shelter, food, coaching and other practical support from training to employment.

‘The Brick will do everything they can to give some respite from the harsh realities and challenges many face in the winter months. Your donation will be the first step in changing someone’s life. Please help families and individuals in Wigan this Christmas and donate to The Brick’  Maxine Peake
