Intaglio launches fundraising with Wigan Warriors
The team at Intaglio have been working with Wigan Warriors to launch their memory wall in celebration of their 150th Anniversary. This project took on the fundraising software of our company Fundit Now, giving the club full access to their own fundraising website and visibility of plaque sales.
Creating a theme
Formed in 1872 as Wigan Football Club, Wigan was a founding member of the Northern Rugby Football Union. 2022 sees them celebrating their 150th anniversary making it the perfect time for Wigan Warriors to launch their memory wall.
In celebration of the club, they wanted to invite their fans to share their memories and tributes to the club by purchasing a personalised plaque. The fans plaques will feature alongside milestone plaques of their Hall of Fame players and Club Legends.
The club selected an area within their community garden, located in a peaceful position near the border to the DW Stadium. This creates a real focal point for the fans to come and enjoy their personalised plaques.
In celebration of the club’s anniversary year, the design team have created a theme running through the centre of the display. This will include a series of images and accolades of Wigan Warrior’s rich history. A mock up was created to help show this off to supporters to encourage them to be part of the memory wall.

“Andy at Fundit Now has been integral at launching our scheme, he has been on hand at all times to help with any questions regarding the project. Whilst we wanted to do this for our 150th Anniversary we would consider a similar campaign in the future for other fundraising initiatives”
