Wig Wednesday 2016!
People across the UK will be donning the biggest, brightest and silliest wigs they can find to help raise funds for CLIC Sargent on Wednesday 25th May for Wig Wednesday! So get your friends together, buy yourself a wig and get involved!
Now in its 6th year, Wig Wednesday was born in 2011 from the idea of a CLIC Sargent supporter. Inspired by a family member he decided to wear a wig for the day and collect vital funds for the charity. It was a fun new way to get people involved and caught on right away! And it’s not just the local community pitching in; they have even had support from famous faces such as Natalie Cassidy and Roberts Glenister!
Money raised from Wig Wednesday events goes straight into CLIC Sargent’s ongoing programs to help children and young people with Cancer here in the UK. Not only do they provide support teams at hospitals across the country, they have also set up “Homes from Home” so that families can stay nearby to the hospitals where their children are being treated. Their nurses work to co-ordinate treatments so that children can spend as much time at home with their families, while their social workers provide care and support in coping with diagnosis.
