Friends and family donned an array of wigs and hairpieces for the day to support a charity event aimed at raising money for the Macmillan Unit at the West Suffolk Hospital,
Mark Lowther, who has spent time in the Bury hospital being treated for esophagus Cancer, organised “Wear a Wig for Mark Day” at his local pub in Thetford.
The day raised a total of £900 which has been handed over to the My WiSH Charity.
Mark, who lives in Bury Road with his partner Kirsty Johnson, has had to put his domestic repair business on hold while he is being treated and said he was “delighted” with how the day went and the amount of money raised.
There was music, a barbecue and the town mayor even turned up and volunteered to have water balloons thrown at him to help boost the funds.
Mark said “We had some fantastic prizes which were all weird and wonderful and many local businesses donated. “I’ve been using The Albion for about 30 years and it was the perfect place to hold the event. The landlord donated the food and everyone said it was one of the best days that they have had, it was brilliant and I’m delighted with how it went.”
