Computing students at the College of West Anglia in King’s Lynn have been raising money for charities close to their hearts. 

With help from members of the hair and beauty department at the Tennyson Road campus, Dan Edge braved a leg wax and Ashley Crump opted for a beard and moustache shave.

Between them, they raised around £100 for West Norfolk charity Megan’s Challenge.

Ravi Hewagamage also braved the leg wax, in aid of Cancer Research, raising around £100.

He said: “I chose this charity as, unfortunately, almost everyone knows someone that has been diagnosed with cancer or has had cancer, so this is my way of doing something to help others.”

Sue Hewitt, progress coach for computing, said: “The students approached me and said they would like to do a fundraising event to raise money for charity.

“I admired their enthusiasm; it was all their own doing. I gave support where needed, but it was all down to them.

“Computing staff contributed by donating money to the charities instead of sending Christmas cards to one another last year.”
