East Midlands gets wiggy with it

Over 130 businesses and schools across the East Midlands signed up to support children and young people with cancer by taking part in this year's Wig Wednesday.

East Midlands gets wiggy with it

Employees from numerous businesses, along with staff and children from a variety of schools, donned their wigs on Wednesday 20 May, raising awareness and funds for CLIC Sargent.

Nottinghamshire Police staff showed their support by wearing their wigs and holding a raffle, raising a fantastic £228, while employees at Morrisons Hinckley sported their wigs on checkouts and the shop floor, collecting £131. 

Top marks went to children and staff at Christchurch C of E Primary School in Chesterfield who held their very first Wig Wednesday catwalk show, having made all of their wigs during classroom lessons. Each class paraded their wigs and raised a fantastic £119.

CLIC Sargent Fundraising Manager Andy Fuller said: "The support across the East Midlands was fantastic and everyone I visited seemed to be having a lot of fun in their chosen wigs. A huge thank you goes out to everyone involved!"
