Time to dust off your wig and get involved in CLIC Sargent’s biggest fundraiser of the year!
Our pubs pride themselves on working with the community to raise money for CLIC Sargent – and Wig Wednesday is no exception. Why not check out The Crosse Keys getting involved below?
Our staff have sat in baths of beans and walked on hot coals in the course of the £12 million we’ve raised for our chosen charity CLIC Sargent, but there’s no need for our customers to go to such extremes… you can raise vital funds for children and young people with cancer – simply by wearing a wig!
Don’t forget to capture all of those wig-wearing moments on camera!
If you do join us in the pub to fundraise for CLIC Sargent, tweet us using the hashtag #WigWednesday and tag @JDWTweet and @CLIC_Sargent!
If you don’t have a wig in mind, you can make your very own. Use one of CLIC Sargent’s wig templates! Download (from the bottom of this page), colour it in, cut it out and get wiggy with it!
The money you raise
Here are some of the ways in which the money you raise through Wig Wednesday helps CLIC Sargent to make a real lasting difference:
- £66 could pay for a family to stay in a CLIC Sargent Home from Home for two nights, meaning that they can be close to where their child is receiving cancer treatment.
- £170 is the grant CLIC Sargent gives to families as soon as a young person is diagnosed with cancer, to stop sudden and unexpected costs becoming a problem.
- £210 could pay for a CLIC Sargent nurse for one day, who co-ordinates treatment to maximise the amount of time a young person can spend at home.
- £821 could pay for a CLIC Sargent social worker for a week, who helps young cancer patients and their families to cope with the cancer-diagnosis impact.
