Waxing lyrical

February 16, 2012

Manchester men had chests, stomachs, shoulders, backs and armpits waxed to raise £9,000 for a toddler with a life-threatening muscular condition.

The waxing was at the Hale home of Jonathan Dee, whose one-year-old son David suffers from Spinal Muscular Atrophy.

The £9,000 raised will go towards experimental drug trials for a cure.

Mr Dee was joined by supporters Jamie Moryoussef, Jeremy Dee, Jonathan Epstein, James Glaskie, Nik Garston, Jonny Kay, Eli Portnoy and Barrie Taube.

A man was sponsored for £2k to have his chest waxed

A last-minute recruit was Ilan Lieberman, who agreed to have his chest waxed if he could attract £2,000 in sponsorship. He did.
