Workers at a Leeds photography firm are all wearing wacky wigs today to raise money for a children’s cancer charity.
Staff at Powerhouse Photography in Pudsey have joined the nationwide fundraising event to show support for children and young adults with cancer.
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.”
