Anita braves the scissors and raises over £550

The Big Buzz gives people the chance to show their support for children and young people with cancer by getting creative with their hair.

Anita said: “I woke up one morning and said to my husband, I would really like to help young children living with cancer. I did some research and found out about CLIC Sargent.

"CLIC Sargent also put me in touch with The Little Princess Trust so that my hair will be made into a real hair wig for children who have sadly lost their hair through treatment for cancer.”

Anita originally set herself the target of raising £300 for CLIC Sargent, and was delighted to raise a fantastic £579!

A big thank you

CLIC Sargent Fundraising Manager Liz Blunt said: “A big thank you to Anita for her fantastic fundraising and thinking of others who are going through such a difficult time in their lives.

"The money raised will really make such a difference to the work we do to help families who have a child living with cancer.”
