Hilarious! And for a good cause. Pitched up to Barclays in Muswell Hill to wax the well-tanned and pretty hairy legs of Steve Kalli, Area Director for Barclays North London.
This is all in aid of the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning in support of Macmillan Nurses. And that is a cause that is so worthwhile. Macmillan nurses came to my sister’s house for the last two days of our mother’s life – and like everyone who has the benefit of their presence – I am indebted and a complete fan as a result.
Last year Barclays raised £140,000 to pay for a Macmillan Nurse to based in a local hospital. This year they hope to do the same and pay for a senior specialist dietitian at University College Hospital who will directly support local people referred there suffering from cancer.
And as for Steve’s leg waxing, he didn’t scream – and actually I think he rather liked the look of the smooth version!
