Staff and pupils don wigs for CLIC Sargent

This was the first time Spittal Primary School had taken part in Wig Wednesday. Supported by the pupil charity committee, led by Miss Thomson, staff and pupils happily donned wacky wigs and sported new hairdos for a day.

The pupils also took part in a 'guess the hairs in the jar' competition and a fun wacky wig race in the playground. 

CLIC Sargent Fundraising Manager Rachael McLean said: "The staff and pupils at Spittal Primary looked fantastic in their colourful wigs and creative hairstyles. 

"We're so pleased they enjoyed taking part in this year's Wig Wednesday and look forward to working together again in the new term." 

What could this money do?

Last year CLIC Sargent supported more than 580 children and young people with cancer, and their families, from Scotland. We gave more than 370 grants to a value of over £76,000, to help families deal with the financial impact of cancer.

£241 could pay for a family to stay in a CLIC Sargent Home from Home for a week.
