RS Components Waxes Chests for Charity

Seven shift workers at the Nuneaton branch of RS Components made a “bald” gesture last week in aid of high-flying paramedics. The men bid their chest hair a fond farewell in aid of the Warwickshire and Northamptonshire Air Ambulance.

“You never know when you might need the air ambulance, so we thought we’d do something to help,” said Kevin Clarke, who works at RS Components on Walsingham Drive. “They also get no money from the government and rely on public donations so it’s a really good cause to help; I am also very hairy, so thought it would be a good idea to have a chest wax.”

As the staff members work at various times throughout the day, the waxing was carried out in three stages. Two men were waxed during the morning shift, three during the back shift, and the final two during the twilight shift.

“As a company, we do quite a lot of stuff for charity and there are seven of us doing the sponsored chest wax in total,” said Clarke. “I’ve done a sponsored silence before, as I find it hard to keep my mouth shut.”

The Air Ambulance Service is a life-saving organization that runs three services. Since its maiden flight back in October 2003, it has gone on to save thousands of lives from across the region from its base in Coventry.
