Carlisle Nursery Supports Wig Wednesday

The family of Oscar Leggett, who died in 2010 at 21 months old after being diagnosed with a brain tumour, have spurred on his former nursery to get involved with Wig Wednesday

Carlisle Nursery Supports Wig Wednesday

At the time of Oscar's treatment, mum Liz and dad Keith, as well as Oscar’s older brother Archie, were supported by CLIC Sargent emotionally and financially, and also after he died.

Since then Liz and her family and friends have supported CLIC Sargent through a fund they set up in Oscar’s name.

They have now raised over £5,500 and Liz volunteers for the charity as a volunteer representative in the Cumbria area.

Liz said: “When Oscar was diagnosed we were supported by CLIC Sargent straight away.

"This support was for the whole family and I personally don't feel like we would have got through our darkest days without it. It is an amazing charity and I choose to support it to give something back as sadly we wont be the last family to go through such a tragedy.”

Liz and her two girls, Oscar’s sisters, Jazmyn and Darcy, launched the event at Oscar's former nursery, Kinder Park Nursery.

In the picture above they are trying out a few wigs for Wig Wednesday with some of their friends, Jessie and Rory, and nursery manager Joanne Routledge.
