Wig walk is hair-raising fun

WIG-WEARING fund-raisers stepped out to raise cash for a new charity.

They took in 11 Brampton pubs, starting at The Britannia, to help raise the £25,000 initial cost needed for Embracing Life, a new centre where those with a life-changing physical medical problem can get support, advice and free therapies.

Each pair of wigged walkers picked up a domino from every pub landlord and the duo with the highest spot score at the end of the night won a barbecue hamper.

The fun ended with a hog roast, music and a raffle draw to which local businesses and pubs donated prizes.

Karen Carroll, secretary of Embracing Life, said: “The whole committee would like to send a huge thank you to everyone who took part.

“From those who thought of the original idea, the 11 pubs for helping us stage the event, the Mayor and Mayoress of Chesterfield for coming along to support us and especially to John and Jodie of the Britannia, without whose support we would not have had such a great time.”
