Staff from The Beauty Barn, at Stonham Barns, were on hand to perform the delicate procedure.

After the wax Mr Forward thanked those who had helped with the event.

Mr Forward said: “They told me that waxing is one of the more uncomfortable parts of the modern beauty regime. Well, they were right but I was happy to do it for a great cause.

“I'm delighted that so many people have helped us raise money for such a great cause.”
