Staff and young people at Paisley’s Kibble Education and Care Centre have been waxing lyrical about raising money for charity.

So much so, chef Alex Dow and two of his trainees volunteered to have their legs waxed as part of the fundraising for Macmillan Cancer Support’s World’s Biggest Coffee Morning.

A large number of staff gathered in the canteen for the coffee morning and to witness Alex, 49, and two Kibble pupils who are training in the kitchens for their SVQ Level 1 qualification – go through the pain barrier for a good cause.

The total raised on the day was £345 after the brave trio was sponsored to have their legs waxed and shaved by beauty therapist, Fiona Galbraith, from Paisley’s Kenneth Edward salon.

Alex said: “We wanted to do something that raised a bit more money than just having a coffee morning.

“With the boys coming up with the idea and volunteering, I really had to join in.

“I’m a bit averse to pain, so having my legs waxed is not something I would have done on a regular basis. But it was worth it to raise so much for a great charity.”
