Mark waxes lyrical for charity

Builders merchant Mark Levett pushed himself through the pain barrier when he had his moustache waxed at the end of ‘Movember’ to raise money for Prostate Cancer Charity.

Mark waxes lyrical for charity

Levett, who works at Kent Blaxill’s Bury St Edmunds branch, was one of 21 men across the company to grow a moustache for the charity event which takes place every November.

The brave man alsoagreed to have a full body wax when customers offered him an extra contribution.

“The moustache wax hurt but it wasn’t as bad as some of the rest of the body wax, although I think some of the onlookers thought I was in more pain than I was,” he said.

The waxing at the Stephen John salon in Bury St Edmunds was witnessed by a small crowd of customer and staff sponsors.

After the event Levett had raised at least £480 for the charity. The Movember event was organised at Kent Blaxill by Karl Pannell who said: “I thought I might get four or five volunteers but in the event I got 20, and the event was really well supported across the company.

“We hope to raise £1,000 -£1,500, and will be totalling up over the next few days.”
