Lets Connect

David and Darryl talk about their friendship

David and Darryl are both avid football and rugby fans who were connected together through Embrace Wigan and Leigh.

Darryl wanted to go to watch his team play in Wigan but didn’t have anyone to go with. David, who was already going to every home game, offered to volunteer his time and be matched up. After a couple of initial connections through our co-ordinator both Darryl and David soon struck up a friendship and started to attend together - they have since been to many, many games with Darryl even dragging David to the Wembley final .

The two have now been friends for many years and attend events outside of sport.
If you feel you would like to volunteer your time like David and share the things you are passionate about then please call us on: 01942 233323 or
