Lincoln RAF personnel get waxed for charity

Four RAF Coningsby personnel had their chests, legs and backs waxed by Lincoln College beauty students in aid of the Muscular Dystrophy Campaign.

Eleven personnel in total visited the college to act as models for level 3 beauty therapy students, who were being assessed in hot stone massage.

Sharon Croft, a Lecturer in Beauty and Therapy at Lincoln College said: “I organised the event with my husband John Croft, who is the flight sergeant. John’s son Ben Croft, who now 21, suffers from Muscular Dystophy which is a muscle-wasting condition.

“The day is very much a pleasure/pain day. The guys have been great organising the fundraising. Here at the college we do charity events all the time and the students are always keen to get involved. Community spirit is a big part of their course.”
