BRAVE sales adviser Sam Thompson at The Original Factory Shop in Ilfracombe grinned and bared it as he endured a charity chest wax on Saturday, much to the delight of shoppers.

Sam's willingness to put his chest on the line raised more than £200 for the Lantern Pre-school, the store's chosen charity for the year, bringing the total to £450 so far.

His ordeal was carried out by beautician Ellie Swanson from Elegance at Jackies, opposite The Original Factory Shop in the High Street.

The Original Factory Shop stores in Bideford and Holsworthy are also raising money for local charities of St John Ambulance and St Peter's Fair respectively.
