Chef waxes legs for charity

Thatcham teenager, Tom Brannagan, raised £300 for Swings and Smiles by having his legs waxed

A TEENAGER from Thatcham had to grit his teeth this week when he had his legs waxed for charity.

Tom Brannagan of St John's Road, Thatcham, was raising money for the West-Berkshire based charity Swings and Smiles, which plans to build a recreation centre for children with special needs.

The 19-year-old had the treatment at the Hare and hounds Hotel in Speen, where he has worked as a chef for ten months, on Tuesday evening.

Mr Brannagan, who was sent a good luck message by charity patron and television presenter Clare Balding, said: “I've been involved in Swings and Smiles since it started about four years ago.

“I've never had my legs waxed before but I was told it would be painful.

“It was especially painful by the ankles. I had to grin and bare it because it's for a good cause.

“It feels very strange to have such smooth legs.”

The stunt raised £300 and The Hare and Hounds will also to donate a £1 for every desert sold in its restaurant this month.
