A CLITHEROE accountant got in touch with his feminine side and had his legs waxed, raising more than £600 for Derian House children’s hospice.

Staff at Blackburn-based accountancy firm P M & M looked on as 60-year-old Tony Tinker, along with colleague Tony Brierley, grimaced their way through the ordeal.

Derian House provide incredible support to families before and after the death of a child.

Tony Tinker, general practice partner at P M & M, said: “It is such a fantastic cause that, however painful it was, Tony and I were determined to see it through. I’m sure the money raised will be of real help to the charity.”

Susie Poppitt, Fundraising Manager for Derian House, said: “It’s fantastic to see local businesses willing to go to such lengths to make a worthwhile contribution to our cause. All those who fund-raise for Derian House are making a real difference. We thank P M & M for their support.”
