Leigh’s game against Sheffield on Sunday - Father’s Day - will see the club show its support for men’s health issues.

Sunday is the last day of Men’s Health Week 2015 and representatives from Trim Down Shape Up (TDSU) will be on hand to offer advice.

TDSU are a free fitness and health service for men in Leigh, Wigan and Ashton. It is a male-only fitness group and their fitness coaches aim to support you into taking charge of your own health, as well as getting fitter or trying to shift excess pounds.

Before kick-off the TDSU groups from Leigh and Wigan will be participating in a touch rugby game at the Leigh East Pavilion from 1:30pm. Over the last few weeks Micky Higham along with the Leigh Community Trust staff, have been down to the sessions, giving the Leigh TDSU team some coaching tips to hopefully give the Leigh team an extra edge against the old enemy.

For this Sunday only the Legends Bar will be turned into the Men United Arms. This is to help raise awareness of the silent killer Prostate Cancer. There will be various activities going on in the Men United Arms including free men’s health check for men between the ages of 40 to 64.
