A new wig bank is appealing for donations to help support people who have medical conditions that affect their hair.

Tracy Harper, a stylist trained by Trevor Sorbie, has been working with the St Barnabas Hospice Day Therapy service to open a wig bank in Lincoln.

The service, which is expected to open its doors in January, already has a number of new and donated wigs but is keen to increase its offering.

The wig bank will provide wigs for a small donation to the charity, and will also offer advice on the types and styles of wigs, aftercare, hair and scalp care.

People can also benefit from free personalised wig styling and can donate un-needed wigs back to help others.

Tracy, who currently holds advice and wig styling sessions at the St Barnabas Day Therapy centre in Lincoln, said: "This is a great opportunity for us all to work together to develop a new, much-needed service in Lincolnshire .

“Wigs can be an expensive outlay at a difficult time and we can work together to provide everyone with the opportunity to have a good-quality wig, personally styled in a friendly environment, which in turn will support self-confidence and esteem at what can be a challenging time".

As well as wigs, donations of hats, caps or scarves are also welcome.

Donations can be made via any St Barnabas shop or day therapy centre, with a number of hair salons also accepting wigs.
