STUDENTS' preparations for careers in the Army, the Navy or the police force could not have got any worse... when they had strips torn off them for charity.
Scary hairstyles and make-up of the girls who waxed their legs took away some of the pain - but for one student the pain was so bad that he was reduced to tears.
But the bravery of the uniformed services students at the College of West Anglia's Isle Campus in Wisbech helped their counterparts in the beauty therapy department to launch a week-long fundraising campaign.
Jenny Banks, the college's marketing co-ordinator who helped organised Monday's charity waxing, said: "The uniform services students were very good sports. They were not screaming their heads off, but one student did cry on the bed because of the pain.

"The girls don't usually have backcomb or beehive hairstyles either, nor do they wear loads of jewellery and face paint. But it was all in the name of charity."
Throughout this week the Level 2 Beauty Therapy students have held events around the Ramnoth Road college to raise money for Sue Ryder Care - a week they have dubbed 'Febru-hairy'.
