A hair-larious day of fund raising at Penlon
21st May 2015
Staff at Penlon headquarters took part in Wig Wednesday yesterday raising money for CLIC Sargent, the UK’s leading cancer charity for children and young people.
Colourful wigs, celebrity wigs, and simply outrageous wigs, we had a hair-lairious day, and all for a good cause!
CLIC Sargent was formed in 2005 through merger between CLIC and Sargent Cancer Care for Children. They provide clinical, practical, financial and emotional support. From diagnosis onwards their aim is to help the whole family deal with the impact of cancer and its treatment, life after treatment and, in some cases, bereavement.
Sargent Cancer Care for Children - founded in 1968 by Sylvia Darley OBE as a lasting memory to the late Sir Malcolm Sargent.
CLIC - Cancer and Leukaemia in Childhood - founded in 1976 by Bob Woodward following the diagnosis of his young son Robert with cancer.

“This year's Wig Wednesday was a great event, well done to everybody involved. It was a delight to see so many smiles and hear so much laughter around Penlon… as well as raising money for such a worthwhile cause. It was a privilege to be part of it.”
