Mr Forward decided to brave the wax recently to support the National Autistic Society for World Autism Awareness Week earlier this month.

The initiative has so far raised a total of £684 for the charity.

It is a cause that is close to Mr Forward’s heart as his own grandson, 8-year-old Jack, has autism.

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