A hotel manager is facing up to the prospect of having his legs waxed in front of a packed pub ... if enough money is raised for charity.

Lee Oldale will say goodbye to his leg hair if Ye Olde Griffin Hotel’s charity night on Friday, which starts at 9pm, raises £700 for children’s charity Variety.

Other staff have also agreed to make sacrifices if certain fundraising targets are reached.

Sam in the kitchen will have his legs waxed for £100, bar worker Aaron for £250, Steve in the kitchen for £350, Borja for £450 and manager Lee’s son George for £550.

Deputy manager Lee Ruck, who will have his head shaved for £650, said: “Hopefully lots of people will come along to see Lee (Oldale) suffer.”
