Welcome to Pink Wig Events, for those of you who don't know who we are or what we do hopefully this webpage will enlighten you – thank you for looking.
We are a group of fundraisers from Falmouth who organise events to raise money for The Breast Care Team at the Royal Cornwall Hospital, Truro and Breast Cancer Now, nationally.
All of the money raised goes towards vital equipment and research into earlier diagnosis and better treatments for breast cancer.
As we are all aware this disease now affects 1 in 8 women and let’s not forget men can be affected too.
Breast cancer is, unfortunately, a disease that we are all far too familiar with.
Pink Wig began in 2009 when a group of friends went out to wish a friend well at the beginning of her cancer treatment (Sally our founder) and decided for a giggle to all wear a pink wig….little did we realise where that night would lead us !!
Year on year our ‘girls night out’ has grown beyond our wildest dreams, to date (2018) we have raised £90,000 for our chosen charities. We have been overwhelmed with continued support from our community including many local businesses, local media, the infamous Falmouth Town Marine Band with Betty Stogs and Tim Vigus from Southwest Bars & Events for believing in our event and inviting Pink Wig to be the first night of Falmouth Week.
It goes without saying that our most valued support comes from the ladies of Falmouth & beyond who continue to attend our annual event (and more) year after year at Pink Wig Night.
We hope that you will all continue to support us and help raise vital funds and awareness for years to come…
