Two police officers are preparing for a wax off next week in a hair-raising bid to raise funds for Kent, Surrey & Sussex Air Ambulance.
Dan Holdstock and Terry Vine will be marking the end of Movember with a sponsored “Wax off Wednesday” on December 2nd.
The pair decided to have their chests waxed in a “moment of madness” and will be filmed as they lose their locks at the Hempstead House Hotel & Spa.
Dan, 34, said: “Unfortunately, we both have a healthy chest wig so it’s going to be painful with lots of expletives and passing out but we don’t mind going through a little pain for the greater good.
“I’ve been waxed before and it was extremely painful but that’s the lengths we go to for charity.
“The event will be filmed with a censored version and there will be before and after pictures. If you have seen the film The 40-year-old Virgin then you know what to expect.”
In the 2005 American comedy, Andy Stitzer’s work colleagues take him to have his chest waxed in a bid to finally woo a woman but he is left screaming and swearing in agony as a salon worker tears strips off him in the shape of a smiley face.
Dan and Terry have so far raised £120 and can be sponsored at www.justgiving.com/danandterrywaxoffwednesday
