BRAVE Wigan students endured an eye-watering makeover in aid of their school’s charity.
Byrchall High School pupils battled it out to be fund-raising champions and of the year and have managed to raise double than the intended target.
Year 11 boys volunteered to have their legs waxed in the hope to claim the crown and raised over £400 for the cause in doing so.
This year, the Ashton school is supporting the children’s charity, Barnardo’s and the four houses into which the final year students are split went head to head in a contest to raise the most money.
Head of the Trojans house and physical education teacher, Mike Wood, joined 15-year-old pupils Jakobb Yates, Ryan Williams and Gareth Tickle in having their hair stripped off by Ashton’s Sun Lounge Beauty Salon.
Mr Wood said that he couldn’t be more pleased with how much they managed to raise in the end, adding: “With the rumours going around that leg waxing is one of the worst pains you could endure, I was a little worried. I have to admit the pain side of things was minimal to the fact that I’d have bald legs over the cold season! I just want to say a big thanks to all that helped raise the money and especially to Susan Reay at the Sun Lounge in Ashton for supplying us with beauticians.”
