After raising over $600 during their MOvember fundraising challenge, The Fair Butcher Yamba and Maclean staff member Sean Postle followed through with his decision to have his chest waxed.
The event which took place outside the butcher shop in Yamba Fair on Saturday afternoon was a novelty for passersby who gasped as each wax strip was removed.
A relieved Sean said that the waxing was very painful and he was glad that it was over.
“The decision for this year’s MOvember theme was made after a few drinks and I volunteered for the job,” Sean said.
“But it was for a great cause,” he added.
Owner of The Fair Butcher Chris O’Connor said that he made sure there was a carton waiting for him when he got off the table (after his chest wax).
“We’ve already got a few ideas up our sleeve for next year’s fundraiser, but I don’t know if waxing will be on the list,” Chris said laughing.
“It was all for a good cause, to raise money and awareness of men’s health issues.
“We’re all so happy and proud of Sean for doing that and the support from the community as well, with people dipping into their pockets and really helping out for this great cause,” he said.
The staff at The Fair Butcher would like to thank Maddie from Ammo Hair and Beauty, Maclean and Rachael from Pure Hair, at Yamba Fair, for their assistance in performing the waxing.
