Wax Off for Epilepsy Scotland

A benefit tribute will be held in memory of Johnstone man Colin McInally on Saturday 29 October in Howood’s Railway Inn as 16 close male friends (including Colin’s Dad) have a combination of back, chest and leg waxes with the aim of raising over £3,500 for national charity Epilepsy Scotland. 

Organiser Scott Jones is delighted at the response from all the guys who were instantly up for this event in Colin’s memory.  Staff and students of Reid Kerr College's beauty department have volunteered their services and will be on hand to make sure the boys don't wimp out of this outrageous event!

You can also support their fundraising efforts by visiting their Justgiving page http://www.justgiving.com/Colin-McInally.
