Wax Works for Red Nose Day!

Kingdown staff and sixth form students volunteered to get their legs and chests waxed last Friday 18th March to help raise money for Comic Relief’s Red Nose Day.
Doing something funny for money.
A total of £93.92 was raised (with more trickling in) to help support people who face poverty, poor health and social injustices, both here in the UK and abroad.
The wax strips were kindly donated to the lunch time fundraising event by the Warminster branches of Boots and Superdrug and fellow students had the pleasure of performing the waxing.
Onlooking students entered into the spirit of the occasion by donating money to see their peers and staff in pain. The ‘victims’ who got waxed, all in aid of charity, were Sixth Form students: Thomas Muston, Harry Layfield, Sam Webster, Alex Smith, Lewis Reynolds and staff IT Technician, James Quick.
“The worst part was having the wax applied” said James, “because you never know just how bad it’s going to be, but it’s all a bit of fun at the end of the day and it’s nice to raise money for such a good cause.”
The day was enjoyed by all the supporters and it was great for the sixth formers to do something ‘Funny for Money’ but for the ‘victims’ it was pain relief, not comic relief, they needed.
