Bald Man Wears Wigs for a Month, Raises £1,800 for Onechild Ghana

Adam Capal, a bald British estate agent from Essex wore comic wigs every day in October to raise funds in aid of Onechild Ghana, a fundation which supports 14 vocational schools in the country.
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.”
