STAFF at Altrincham-based Inrix are getting ready to model some funky new hairstyles for this year's Wig Wednesday.

Staff at Inrix are preparing for the event on May 21 to support CLIC Sargent, the UK's leading cancer charity for children and young people.

Thousands of people across the UK will be donning wigs for the day to raise funds and show support for children and young people with cancer, many of whom lose their hair during treatment.

Michele Atkinson, recruitment and HR co-ordinator at Inrix, said: "We are quite a small company but are very excited to be taking part in Wig Wednesday to raise some vital funds for this very important cause.

"Our staff have some fantastic wigs to wear and we will also be doing a bake off on the same day to raise even more money."

CLIC Sargent fundraising campaigns manager, Katie Turton, said: "We're so pleased Inrix will be getting their wigs on to take part in this year's Wig Wednesday.

"Every day 10 children and young people hear the devastating news they have cancer and CLIC Sargent is here to provide vital support from diagnosis onwards.

"Wig Wednesday is a great opportunity for schools, businesses, universities and communities to raise money and support children and young people with cancer.

"If you or your school, group or workplace would like to join in the fun and wig-up on 21 May you can find out more at or call 0845 1212 492."
