They may be used to dangerous situations as firefighters, but Clive Baillie and Craig Tuck are nervous about what is in store for them this weekend.

The Grantham firefighters have decided to have their legs waxed in Asda as part of a fund-raising drive for two good causes.

They have held several supermarket bucket collections – with the next today (Friday) in Sainsbury’s – to raise money for The Fire Fighters Charity and disabled children’s charity Newlife.

It is all a build-up to the main event on July 5, which will see Clive and fellow firefighter Kyle Campbell tackle the three peaks in just three days – not only that, they will also cycle the 450 miles between the mountains in England, Scotland and Wales.

Clive, 54, said the support they have had from colleagues based at other fire stations across the county has been “brilliant”. Many of them have organised their own collections to add to the pot. As a way of saying thank you, Clive will cycle 200 miles to each of the whole-time fire stations on June 6.

For Clive, to support Newlife is significant, as the charity has given support to his 13-year-old autistic son Jake.

The leg wax will take place in Asda tomorrow (Saturday), between noon and 2pm. The Coloroom will carry out the waxing free of charge.
