“Children in Need is a great charity doing amazing work for throughout the UK. Although I am somewhat concerned about losing my leg hair, my worries are nothing compared to what thousands of children and their carers face every day. I hope this challenge will help raise awareness and funds for a very good cause.”

The leg waxing has kindly been donated by “Moments of Beauty” in Newcastle, and will take place at Keele University Students Union in Sam's Bar at 2:30pm on Friday 17th November.

NKCF have set up an online page for sponsorship, that gives money direct to the BBC charity, You can sponsor Owen’s leg waxing challenge and donate directly to Children in Need by visiting this website. If you are a UK taxpayer, 28% can be added to your donation by the taxman too!
