The team and residents at a Sanctuary Care home in Plymstock donned their most colourful headwear this week to help raise funds for CLIC Sargent.
Wigs galore for national children’s charity
There were wigs galore at Furzehatt Residential and Nursing Home in Furzehatt Road, when the team and residents made sure they looked the part in exchange for donations to the charity’s ‘Wig Wednesday’ campaign.
After ‘mullet-ing’ it over, the Sanctuary Care home jumped at the chance to take part in the fundraising drive.
Colourful fun and 60s music
Sanctuary Care resident Jean Metters said: “The wigs were good fun! I enjoyed wearing my colourful wig and showing off my new locks in photos.”
As part of the event local singer Sam Alan performed hits from the 1960s.
Fellow resident, 89-year-old Audrey Griffin added: “I loved the music – it brought back some wonderful memories.” Jean added: “The singing was great, it made for a perfect day!”
The home’s activities leader, Suzie Cook added: “CLIC Sargent makes a huge difference to the lives of children and young people living with cancer and is a cause close to all our hearts, so when we heard about ‘Wig Wednesday’ we knew we had to take part and show our support for such a worthwhile charity!”
