Have your say

Tomorrow ( May 20) schools, businesses and community groups across the country will be getting their wigs on for CLIC Sargent’s Wig Wednesday. We would love your readers to join them and help support children and young people coping with cancer.

CLIC Sargent provides practical, emotional and financial support for those aged 0-24 with a cancer diagnosis and Wig Wednesday is a great opportunity to get together with colleagues, fellow pupils or friends to have some fun with wigs while raising vital funds.

Our service team based in Ipswich and Addenbrooke’s Hospitals consists of specialist nurses, play specialists, social workers and youth workers who provide clinical, practical, financial and emotional support to help local children and young people cope with cancer and get the most out of life. In 2014, CLIC Sargent cared for 70 young cancer patients and their families from Suffolk and 69 from Norfolk.

We want as many people as possible to wear a wig for the day to show support to children and young people who may lose their hair through treatment for cancer.

It’s easy to get involved. CLIC Sargent can provide you with the materials you need to promote your Wig Wednesday event and you can even buy a selection of fun wigs from our online shop.

Don’t mullet over! Sign up now – visit www.clicsargent.org.uk/wigwednesday or call 0845 1212 492.
