TWO MEMBERSof staff at our Nissan brand centre in Cribbs Causeway, Bristol raised £220 for a dance charity in the city yesterday (March 23, 2016) by getting waxed.
Ollie Glossop and Mitch Clark, who both work at our dealership on Hayes Way, had their chests and stomachs waxed in aid of Dance Voice.
Simon Newson, our General Manager of the new purpose-built, Nissan dealership, said: “We would like to say a huge ‘thank you’ to our Apprentice Technician, 19-year-old Ollie and Parts Advisor, 20-year-old Mitch who were very brave and had their chests and stomachs waxed in aid of our Charity of the Year, Dance Voice.
“Ollie also went the extra mile and got the front of his legs and arms waxed too. Ugne Briedyte, who is our Data Administrator at Wessex Garages, did the waxing free of charge as she took a body waxing course last year.
“So far the pair have raised £220 but there is still money coming in. Anyone who would like to sponsor them can still pop into our dealership or visit www.justgiving.com/wessex-wax/.”
Dance Voice is a Dance Movement Psychotherapy charity based in Bedminster. It is one of the UK’s leading centres dedicated to community-based creative arts therapy. It is also an established training centre for dance movement psychotherapists.
Dance Movement Psychotherapy is founded on the principle that movement reflects a person’s pattern of thinking and feeling. The process uses movement and dance to facilitate emotional, physical, social, mental and spiritual well-being. Dance Movement Psychotherapy is a recognised profession, regulated by a national body.
Mitch added: “The wax was really painful, much more painful than I had expected it to be. Ugne was very good though and I am happy I did it for such a great cause.”
