Nurse at Romford hospital has legs waxed for charity
A NURSE has helped raise money for a charity trek by having his legs waxed.
Michael Mawhinney, who works on the oncology ward at Queen’s Hospital, Rom Valley Way, Romford, decided he wanted to do more than just sponsor two of his fellow hospital workers, who are heading to China to raise money for radiotherapy equipment.
Michael instead had the idea of encouraging people to donate money by getting his legs waxed – a venture which saw him raise �350.
He said: “Having the wax put on was almost enjoyable, because it was very warm and soothing, but then came the pain. It was much worse than getting a tattoo.”
Senior sister Fiona Kenton and senior staff nurse Margaret Delaney aim to raise �10,000 during a ten-day trek in China in October so the hospital can buy Rapid Arc, equipment which will improve treatment for cancer patients.
