Woman sets up 'wig bank' for chemotherapy patients

A local woman has set up a 'wig bank' for cancer patients.

Jaki Carter, who works within cancer services at Noble's, is looking for donations for those receiving chemotherapy. 

She told 3FM that once patients finish chemo and their hair grows back, they have no use for wigs anymore and they're usually thrown away.

Jaki is now looking to recycle them, refitting and tweaking them for new patients.

Anyone wanting to donate wigs can drop them off at the Macmillan Centre in Noble's - you can find more information on the JC Wigs Facebook page.
