Course leader Andrew Kellett said: “The students have organised a fantastic evening of entertainment and Shelly’s restaurant have created what promises to be a delicious menu.”

The dinner is themed around famous hairdos and guests can choose to dine with Jack Sparrow, Marilyn Monroe, Cruella Deville, Slash and many more.

Wigs have kindly been provided by Chuckles Fancy Dress Hire and will be available for anyone wishing to get their wig on and have their photo taken as a memento of the evening. 

Brilliant support

CLIC Sargent Fundraising Manager Daisy Turner said: “CLIC Sargent is there to support children and young people with cancer, as well as their families, every step of the way. But we can’t do it without the support of our brilliant fundraisers such as these great students and groups such as WiRE!”
