Supporting local cancer patients with hair loss, our project will provide a free wig loan and specialist hair care for cancer patients who can't afford an NHS wig prescription. We will also be launching a new coffee morning and bereavement support line. We are able to refresh and revitalise used good quality wigs. These recycled wigs will then be loaned out at no cost to local women which in turn will not only help them financially but help them to feel and look better whilst undergoing treatment for cancer. The financial impact of cancer is huge whether you are on benefits or not and this service is available if they want to loan a wig for a weekend or the duration of their treatment. Many ladies do not have a wig as they can't afford to allocate the minimum £80 prescription cost during this difficult financial time. Our help doesn't end there. We are available one to one or in a group situation to provide expert advice on hair loss and hair regrowth after treatment has ended.
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
So many ladies go without wigs due to the incredible financial impact of cancer. No matter if you are on benefits, half pay, no pay or full pay. Anyone wanting to loan our wigs can call and make an appointment. In addition we will be alleviating the emotional distress that can be caused by hair loss at such a difficult time. Your support will mean our new service can grow to help more local ladies when they need it the most.
Steps to get it done:
We are accepting donations of pre-loved wigs, a donated wig can help someone else at a time when they really need a boost in confidence.
