SCHOOLS, businesses and community groups across Dorset are being asked to grab their wigs for a charity event supporting children and young people with cancer.

On May 21, schools, people and organisations across the county will be wearing wigs for CLIC Sargent’s fundraising ‘Wig Wednesday’ event, helping the charity to give practical, emotional and financial support for those aged up to 24 with a cancer diagnosis.

A CLIC Sargent spokeswoman said: “CLIC Sargent is vital in Dorset and last year supported 75 local families, which included free stays in accommodation near Dorset County Hospital and 54 financial grants to families in Dorset.

“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.

“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.”
