This weekend I’m supporting The
Body Shop’s ‘Get Wiggy With It’ fundraiser for the Teenage Cancer Trust. For those of you who don’t know about the Teenage Cancer Trust, they provide funding and support for teenagers all over the UK suffering from cancer. Whether it’s opening specialist units so they can be treated with other teenagers, funding research or providing support to patients and their families, they are improving the quality of life and chance of survival for thousands of teenage cancer patients. You can find out more on their website, or by watching their video below (warning: it’s an emotional one!)
The Body Shop have a close partnership with Teenage Cancer Trust, and this weekend their staff all across the country will be sporting crazy wigs in store and there are other fun activities going on like hand massages and makeovers. They’ll also be encouraging people to get involved and donate to the charity by offering to match all donations made in store from Friday to Sunday, up to £20,000.
Here are some pics of the staff during last year’s fundraiser in stores!
They’ve challenged me to try on some crazy wigs too! I’m going to be posting a different picture to my Instagram page every day this weekend and The Body Shop are asking YOU to vote for your favourite! They will donate £1 for every vote, so if you have a free minute this weekend then please take the time to cast a vote, it doesn’t cost a thing!
