Big Wig Ball raises over £5,000

Janice Grieves, owner of the Hairport Salon in Brampton, has raised over £5,000 for CLIC Sargent by holding a 'Big Wig Ball'  at the Hallmark Hotel, Carlisle.

Big Wig Ball raises over £5,000

The event was a fantastic night with a flamboyant dress code, entertainment from the up and coming rhythm and blues band, The 45s Carlisle, a charity auction and incredible raffle prize draw.

Janice had chosen to support CLIC Sargent after her friend’s son was diagnosed with cancer and received support from the charity.

She said: “I felt useless at first, didn't know what to say or do. I decided to organise a ball to raise funds for the charity that helped my friend's family, it means a lot to me.”

CLIC Sargent fundraising manager, Vicki Moore said: “Thank you so much to Janice and all the people involved in organising the 'Big Wig Ball'. Their work and support means so much to CLIC Sargent.”
