Men To Be Waxed For Charity At Dorchester Pub

Sydney Arms

12:08pm 30th March 2013

D'you think men don't cry... pop into the Sydney Arms this afternoon (30th March) and you may have to think again!

A group of twelve men will be getting various bits waxed at the pub in Dorchester.

They are raising money to give back to local hospitals who cared for Gemma Downton from Dorchester.

Last November Gemma suddenly fell very ill and was rushed from Dorset hospital to Southampton hospital for life-saving surgery to relieve pressure on her brain. She later was taken to Poole hospital, and finally in February this year she was allowed home. She decided she wanted to give back to the hospitals that had helped her so much.

Therefore, her husband Robert Downton and his brother Stuart, who are local builders, gathered a group of friends together to lose hair and raise money.

The fundraising event kicks off at 3pm.
