Former Monaco GP winner Jenson Button and his McLaren team mate Kevin Magnussen have sportingly taken part in a charity initiative raising money for children with cancer, involving the wearing of wigs.
Wig Wednesday, which is today, is an initiative from CLIC Sargent, cancer care for Chlidren (of which James Allen is proud to be a Patron) and the charity is inviting thousands of people across the UK to put on a wig for the day to raise money and show support for children and young people, who may lose their hair through treatment for cancer.
Every day in the UK 10 families lives will be turned upside down as they learn that their child has cancer. CLIC does fantastic work in supporting those families, who often have to travel many miles to get treatment. BBC’s Eddie Jordan is also a Patron and has raised hundreds of thousands of pounds for the charity with his wife Marie.
Button, who also does a lot of work for Make A Wish foundation, looks worringly rather too at home in his wig in the photo above. Please leave your suggestions for what the caption to this image might be in the comments section below…
The 34 year old said of the CLIC initiative, “The Wig Wednesday look definitely beats helmet hair – but, much more important, I’m happy to support Wig Wednesday 2014.
“CLIC Sargent does a fantastic job helping children and young people with cancer, and Wig Wednesday is a fun and simple way for people to show their support and raise money for this wonderful charity.”
