Using their heads

A fundraising target of £1,000 has been set by staff at the Railway Hotel in Buxton who are looking to support the Christie Hospital.

A sponsored leg wax and a head shave are among the events set to take place during the evening of Saturday, March 17.

There will also be a raffle, with local businesses lending their support by donating prizes, a disco from 7.30pm and a late bar.

Matthew Stone, Assistant Manager said: “We have not done anything like this before but are hoping to raise at least £1,000.”

The charity was chosen as a number of staff members had family who had received treatment at the Christie.
