FROM afros and perms to mullets and Mohicans, staff at Neil Hudgell Solicitors have brought a colourful feel to ‘Wig Wednesday’ in our head office in Hull.
Aimed at raising funds to support children and young people suffering from cancer, people across the country are being urged to don a wig at work, school or even around their local community.
It is being spearheaded by CLIC Sargent, a leading UK cancer charity for children and young people, and their families, and is being backed by celebrities including comedian Harry Hill.
Marketing Manager Susan Hogan – who herself has ditched her usual curls for long, straight locks – said: “We are delighted to be supporting this very worthwhile cause. As a business, we handle many cases where families are affected by the devastating impact of a loved one being diagnosed with cancer.
“We know how important it is for both the individuals themselves, and their families, to have the right support and care at all times. This is especially important in situations where children and young people are affected.
“It is great to raise awareness in such a fun way, although we have had a few funny looks from customers when they have come through our doors today!”
CLIC Sargent provides clinical, practical, financial and emotional support to help people cope with cancer and get the most out of life.
It supports people from diagnosis onwards and aims to help the whole family deal with the impact of cancer and its treatment, life after treatment and, in some cases, bereavement.
People can donate online or text ‘WIGS82 £3’ to 70070.
