Every day, 10 children and young people in the UK are diagnosed with cancer. The gruelling, often life-saving, cancer treatment can last up to three years and frequently leads to children and young people losing their hair.
Caroline Ormiston, CLIC Sargent Fundraising Manager for Yorkshire, said: “Being diagnosed with cancer is a frightening experience for many reasons. One particularly upsetting aspect of the journey is hair loss and having to wear a wig.
“This initiative is designed for people to show that they care about the children and young people who go through this experience, while also fundraising to support them.”
