Parishioners at The Minster at Warminster undergo a male leg wax to raise church funds!

Through The Pain Barrier

Meadows, Richard Golay and Paul Sheridan prepare to become much smoother gentlemen!

Members of The Minster Church held an autumn fete in the Three Horseshoes Mall, Warminster. Among the stalls were a home-made cake stall, tombola, henna tattoos and a book stall.

So far so normal.

The event that drew most interest, however, was the all-male leg wax undertaken by Phil Meadows, Richard Golay and Paul Sheridan. The three brave souls agreed to have their legs waxed in public, which was ably carried out by Kay Sims from the Beauty Retreat, Westbury.  The three men had all been sponsored to do their waxing and kind members of the public also donated while the waxing took place.  The sponsored ‘waxing’ idea was the brainchild of Michelle Meadows, who enlisted her Husband Phil as the first waxing ‘victim’.

The fundraiser was a real community event and Warminster seemed suitably amused at the prospect of men being waxed for charity!

At the time of writing, £792 had been raised from the event with waxing sponsorship money still coming in.

Event organisers Michelle Meadows and Francesca Golay said: "We are delighted with the amount raised and would like to thank everyone who donated their time, help, cakes and tombola items."

Money raised goes to pay the 'parish share', which pays a wide range of activities including: the salaries and housing costs of current clergy, the training for future clergy, support for church schools, work with children and young people in parishes, and funding the Church of England nationally as it speaks up for Christian values with government and wider society.
