Crosspool butcher Philip James had his legs waxed outside his shop this morning to raise money for children with type one diabetes.
Local residents queued up to sponsor Philip in return for the opportunity to remove a wax strip from his legs.
Over £8,000 has been raised so far with the help of the Crosspool community. You can donate money to the cause by visiting virginmoneygiving.com/team/supportingchildrenwithtype1diabetes.
No one is sure what causes type one diabetes, but a virus that mainly affects children is believed to be the most likely cause and Crosspool community has been very supportive in raising funds for Sheffield Children’s Hospital.
