Wig Bank was created by a woman who had breast cancer, who was aware of how expensive wigs can be, even when purchased on the NHS. The service is now run by her sister.
All the wigs they receive are donated by people who have finished chemotherapy, they are then washed and conditioned and sold for £10-£20. A proportion of this amount is donated to a relevant charity.
There is now a network of wig banks throughout the UK although not one in the Peterborough area but they can be purchased via the website or telephone on a sale or return basis. They have also recently sourced brand new wigs direct from a manufacturer and these sell for £40.
