Ouch! This is going to hurt!

Before he jets off, Dean needs to raise £3,250 to make the dream trip of a lifetime come true, and is now in excess of £2,600 thanks to the latest lending of legs when five teachers went fuzz free by having their legs waxed.

To save up, Dean has been saving three out of four weeks wages from his paper round; bag packing with his scout group; helping out at barbecues; running various tombola stalls; and writing to and receiving donations from generous local businesses.

The brave five of Mr Tatton, Mr Hammond, Mr Curson, Mr Windle and Mr Wilson all bared their legs to the knee for Beth Davies, former pupil and now qualified beauty therapist working at Elegant Hair and Nails in Barnoldswick.

A crowd of 85 watched on eagerly as the painful pulling of leg hairs from skin took place and the teacher’s terror was tangible among the shrieks of glee from the students and fellow staff members.

Gail Hargreaves, an English teacher, who organised the event, said: “When I heard about Dean, and his resilience and determination, it reminded me of how proud I am to be part of our community and our school.

“We have some truly amazing young people who deserve to be recognised.

“I had to do something, and this has been a superb idea. I didn’t know how much the kids would enjoy seeing their favourite teachers in pain. And we’ve raised over £85.”

Dean has gone all the way through from Beavers and Cubs to Scouts and will move on to Explorers. He is among only 1% of Scouts who ever get the chance to attend the World Scout Jamboree.
