YOUR EXPERIENCE CAN PATTERN THE WAY YOU THINK

Man Wears Comic Wigs To Raise Funds For Ghana

Leave a comment

Charitable funding has been a hair-raising experience for Essex estate agent Adam Capal, who donned comic wigs every day in October in aid of Onechild Ghana, which supports 14 vocational schools.

His campaign, which to date has raised more than £1,800, took him to Leyton Orient’s training ground, where former West Ham skipper Kevin Nolan and some of the League 2 side’s players tried on some of the giant hairpieces.

The Loughton Synagogue member was inspired by a visit to Ghana in March with his friend Jamie Belnikoff, who founded the charity.

“Seeing it for the first time, I saw how tough it is over there. There were no toilets and no showers. I played football with the children for a bit and they were wearing the same clothes they’d worn all day – and probably would wear the next day, too. The trip made me realise how lucky I am.”

As a bald man, the idea of wearing wigs for a month had a particular appeal.

Mr Belnikoff praised his friend’s campaign, saying: “He has got loads of people engaged.
“Off the back of the Leyton Orient photos, we’ve had a few people saying they want to volunteer in Ghana and we had our annual fundraising five-a-side football tournament and got two extra teams because of his efforts.”
