After their son, Oliver, was diagnosed with leukaemia, Wendy and Jason wanted to do something to raise funds for CLIC Sargent. Wig Wednesday seemed the perfect opportunity.
Staff members at children’s indoor soft play and party centre, Space2Play, donned brightly coloured wigs and the entrance fee for each child on the day went to CLIC Sargent. So far they have raised £380 but are still waiting for more funds to come in.
Space2Play owner Wendy Flynn said: “What a great effort and so much fun. We didn't really plan it and all this was achieved within two weeks. We are so pleased.”
Not only did the Flynns ensure their company was participating in Wig Wednesday, but Oliver’s school, Offley Endowed Primary School, also participated.
They organised a Fun Run the Friday before, as well as showing off their wigs on the day itself, raising £270.
CLIC Sargent Fundraising Manager Catherine Cadman said: “It was so nice to meet Jason and the team at Space2Play, and see them in their wonderful wigs!
“Thank you very much to them and Wendy, and everyone involved for raising so much for children and young people with cancer.
"I’m looking forward to working with them in the future to continue this fantastic work.”
Wendy and Jason are now thinking about how to fundraise in other ways. So here’s a massive from CLIC Sargent for everything they’re doing!
