Haddenham residents Helen Lewis and Carey Holah, together with a group of close friends, are organising a charity event on Saturday 17th May to raise vital funds for the wig department of the Cancer Care & Haematology Fund (CCHF) at Stoke Mandeville Hospital.
Following her diagnosis of breast cancer at the end of last year, Carey has had successful surgery but has subsequently lost her hair as a result of that treatment.
Helen and Carey are both hairdressers and know how important hair is to a person's confidence and psychological wellbeing — so with this is mind the group members are going to be "walking in wigs for wigs"!
For those who are able, the plan is to complete a 20 mile sponsored walk (some will aim for 10 miles), starting at 6am and taking in some of the local villages. The walkers will then return to Haddenham to be joined by Carey and additional family members at about 1.30pm, to walk a further 3 miles around the village — all wearing wigs of course!
To round off the event at 3pm, there will be afternoon tea at the Youth & Community Centre plus a large raffle with some wonderful prizes, to which all local folk are warmly invited.
For further information, please get in contact with Helen, Tel: 292971 or Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
