Wig Wednesday sees care home overrun with Mohicans, tinsel bobs and flourescent blue bouffant for CLIC Sargent.

RESIDENTS at Kenwith Castle’s care home in Bideford sported hilarious hairdos in support of CLIC Sargent’s Wig Wednesday.

Residents and staff wore a colourful array of wigs in support of the initiatives, from tinsel bobs to colourful Mohicans.

Staff also held a coffee morning to raise money for the cause, during which residents and their relatives enjoyed a drink and a chat.

Rae Vanstone, matron at Kenwith Castle, said: “We had a brilliant time supporting the ‘Wig Wednesday’ campaign with residents and their relatives.

“It was a great initiative that made everyone laugh and was a lovely way to raise money for such a good cause.”

The money raised will go towards supporting children and young people with cancer.
