THERE’S more than one way to skin a cat – or shave a leg.
Amid the many fundraisers being planned to help grieving Calala dad Cameron Adams realise his late wife’s dream of owning his own home, this one wins by a whisker for creativity.
When Rachel Grayson read about Mr Adams’ plight in The Leader, it touched her heart and prompted her to try to rid her husband Neil of his hairy legs.
With the help of some persuasive friends, Mrs Grayson eventually convinced him to wax his hirsute legs for the cause.
“It started as a joke about him waxing his legs and we put the pressure on him and he decided he would do it for the cause,” Mrs Grayson said.
“We have a three-year-old boy and we’d hate to be in the position Cameron is.”
Mr Adams lost his wife Tiff, 28, to cancer last month and is now bringing up his two boys – Caleb, 3, and Charlie, 1 – alone.
The charity waxing will be held on Saturday, August 9 and Tracy Larkham has donated her time to do the deed. Mr Adams said he was stunned at the cascade of generosity from the community.
“These are people I wouldn’t know if I ran into them,” he said.
“They’ve just read it in the paper and decided to help.
“I’m just so humbled and grateful for their generosity.”
