Wax­ing in store for brave staff

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - OPINION -

IT WAS a hairy mo­ment for staff at Sains­bury’s as they braved a leg wax for Comic Re­lief. By­brook store check-out staff Andrew Duffield, Adrian Pit­tock, Tom Barker, Matt Good­win and John Ban­ham all had their legs waxed by fel­low staff mem­bers in aid of the char­ity. Check-out man­ager James Corn­well had promised he would do the same if they raised more than £300 and they reached £500. More than £1,000 has been col­lected in to­tal so far from the dif­fer­ent ac­tiv­i­ties. They in­cluded face paint­ing, a karate dis­play, a per­for­mance by the Scenic Twirl Team, man­agers cy­cling on ex­er­cise bikes and wear­ing red shirts. Last week store man­ager Mark Hughes com­pleted a spon­sored si­lence. Spokesman Sharmini Brown said: “Some peo­ple were cy­cling for three hours at a time – they did so well. We also had sup­port from God­in­ton School with the face paint­ing and it was a very en­joy­able day.”
