Last week we hosted a sewing information session for our wig service volunteers at our Cancer Support Centre in Bunbury, Dot’s Place.
Our free wig service has an extensive range of new turbans, scarves, hats and wigs in the latest styles and colours. These may be borrowed, at no cost, for as long as required while going through cancer treatment and fully trained volunteers are available to assist patients with the selection, fitting and management of their wig. If you would like to find out more, visit our Wig Service page.
13 people attended the session, including 7 new volunteers who are keen to start assisting us to make turbans and hats for WA cancer patients.
Throughout the session our Cancer Support Coordinator, Clare and experienced wig service volunteers, Helen and Tricia spoke about the various styles, colours and fabrics we have available. Following this, Ann and Kerry who volunteer their time by sewing hats and turbans for us explained the assortment of patterns available.
Dot’s Place Bunbury have provided 340 hats, wigs, turbans and scarves to West Aussies affected by cancer in the past twelve months. This service would not be possible without the support of our incredible volunteers.
