Get Ready For Wig Wednesday!

This time next week, don't be surprised if some of your work colleagues pitch up at the office in a colourful wig. There's a perfectly good reason for it.

May 25th is Wig Wednesday, an event that helps to support CLIC Sargent and the brilliant work they do for young people with cancer. It's a great idea, because it shows support over one of the most sensitive side effects of chemotherapy.

Facing cancer is tough enough, but sometimes it's the little things that cause the most distress. Hair loss is an unfortunate signifier that you're facing cancer, and brings its own set of challenges. Do you face the world bald and proud, headscarf it up, or wear a wig?

Well, next Wednesday people across the country will be getting wiggy with it, helping to raise awareness and funds for the vital work CLIC Sargent do to help kids and their families through the toughest of times. From their Homes From Home, hostels close to primary care centres that help ease the grind of long round trips to hospital, to work liaison services to get parents the paid leave they need, CLIC Sargent are there to make things just that little bit easier.

It's not too late to get involved! The CLIC Sargent site has a ton of resources including fundraising packs and ideas for events. You can even get a wig from them, if you're quick.

So why not indulge that inner fancy dress fiend, and wig out next Wednesday? I can guarantee you won't be on your own. And who knows, you might just stumble upon your new signature look...
