Kind hearted pub goers at The Crows Nest pub in Halton View, Widnes took their support for the Cathie Stankevitch Foundation to the next level over the Christmas period with an unplanned event raising almost £450 in one night for the registered Charity.
Pub regular Rob Dean decided that it would be a good idea to brave the pain and put his hand up to have his body hair waxed, and it turned out to be a very lucrative idea that will have a big impact on one of the Charities Community Projects in 2017, which will support local children and young people.
There were more than enough willing volunteers to apply the wax to Rob’s chest, thighs and eye brows and its fair to say that the pain eventually took its toll, but not before the superb figure was raised for the ReSport Halton Project, which will be officially launched on Wednesday 1st February.
It’s not the first time that Landlord Keith and Landlady Ali, the staff and the customers at the Crows Nest have supported local Charity, the Cathie Stankevitch Foundation but its fair to say that previous fundraising efforts haven’t involved as much pain as this one.
Despite losing his eyebrows in the event, Rob and his waxing team had a great night and the money raised will give local disadvantaged children and young people the opportunity to participate in sporting sessions, something that is unfortunately not affordable or accessible to many local families.
This is another fine example of the local community supporting each other and the Cathie Stankevitch Foundation are incredibly grateful to Keith and his team for this hosting this recent event and for the ongoing support.
