A CHARITY FUN DAY that was originally arranged this weekend to aid cancer sufferer Anne MacLean-Chang to receive treatment not available on the NHS will go ahead.
That is despite Mrs MacLean-Chang having received the excellent news that, follow an intervention by the First Minister, she would receive the treatment through NHS Scotland.
Organisers have decided all their great work in arranging the special ‘Pamper and Fun’ day at the Bishopmill Hall in Elgin should not go to waste – so will instead donate all funds raised to the Oaks in Elgin, where it will benefit patients and their families currently receiving cancer treatment.
A spokeswoman for the fundraising team said: “There will be a host of locally based and fully qualified hair and beauty ladies who have kindly donated their time to do ‘mini-treatment’ taster sessions, including Gelish Gel Polish and reflexology – with some brave men even daring to undergo chest and back waxing!
“For the kids we have a bouncy castle and slide to keep them occupied – and there will be face-painting, glitter tattoos, a snack stall and some hair curling and glitter for the little ladies.
“We also have a bottle and book stall and a lovely selection of cakes and bakes and more to follow any donations of bottles or prizes most welcome pop in and say Hi.”
The afternoon will get under way from 12pm until 4pm on Sunday (October 30).
