Barnsley College’s new principal has had a hair-raising start to his tenure after he took part in a sponsored half-leg wax for charity.

Chris Webb, who started at the college in September, put his legs in the hands of the college’s hair and beauty department in exchange for donations from staff and learners who gathered to watch the painful ordeal.

The total amount raised was £170 and all donations will be given to Children in Need.

“I was ready for some pain but I was surprised by how much it hurt,” said Mr Webb.

“However, a little pain is nothing compared to what some of the children who are supported by Children in Need go through.

“I was happy to play a small part in helping those children by volunteering for the wax and it was great to see our students and staff keenly donating money to support this fantastic cause.”
