Why did we wear wigs? – To raise money for CLIC Sargent – a charity which helps children who are suffering with cancer. Everyone got involved and, as you can see, it was a very colourful day. We had great fun and, in the process were able to help others less fortunate than us by raising the sum of £141.34.

Well done Wednesday wig wearers!

We collected the gifts together and were able to make a lovely donation to St Hugh’s Lewsey Church Centre. They, in turn, have been able to pass on the food parcels to families in need.
