Addie inspires school to support Wig Wednesday

13-year-old Addie, who was treated for spindle cell sarcoma when she was nine, got her school involved in Wig Wednesday to raise funds for children and young people with cancer.

Addie inspires school to support Wig Wednesday

Addie, from Bishop’s Stortford, was supported by CLIC Sargent four years ago and continues to raise awareness and funds for the charity.

She thought Wig Wednesday was the perfect opportunity to get her school, The Hertfordshire & Essex High School and Science College, involved.

Her form, along with communications officer Lucy Gray and Year eight leader Jo Jurd wore a whole range of wacky wigs for the duration of the day, and collected donations at lunch time to raise funds. 

Ms Gray said: “Our Year eight students had great fun wearing a variety of colourful wigs on Wig Wednesday - they certainly turned a few heads! 

“It was a fantastic way to raise awareness for the CLIC Sargent campaign and we hope it will become a regular event in the school calendar.”

Thank you

CLIC Sargent Fundraising Manager Catherine Cadman said: “I would like to say a massive thank you to Addie, her mum Michelle, and to The Hertfordshire & Essex High School and Science College for its ongoing support. 

“It’s a great example of how simple and easy it is to participate in Wig Wednesday, with excellent results in raising awareness and funds for children and young people with cancer, and their families. I look forward to working with Addie on further events.”
