FUNDRAISERS endured hair-raising moments - quite literally - at a pub last Friday.
Male football players and members of Exmouth Rugby Club were among those who had their bodies waxed at The Heavitree pub, on High Street, to raise money for the South West Children's Hospice.
Landlady Maisie Dawson, 33, said the event started off with 12 men having their hair waxed but more people then joined in.
She added: "They were having their backs, chest and eyebrows done. Everyone got into the spirit - it was a really fun evening."

Maisie said she expected more than �1000 to have been raised for the hospice.
"The evening started at 8pm and people were still being waxed as late as 11pm," she joked. Local dart players also took part in the challenge.

Forty-year-old Jody Bolt, landlord of the Heavitree, also had his body waxed. He said: "It was not the most pleasant thing I have ever had done.
"The worst bit was waiting around beforehand. There was one guy who had the pattern of cross etched onto his body because he was so hairy.
"We raised a lot of money so on that basis it was worth it and something I would consider doing again in the future.
