DARING volunteers braved a sponsored wax as they joined the fight against one of the world’s rarest diseases.

Seven men from Linwood and Port Glasgow Spiritual Missions gritted their teeth as they endured a painful treatment at Dermica, in Linwood,in aid of the ROHHAD Association.

ROHHAD stands for rapid onset obesity hyperventilation hypothalamic dysfunction and autonomic nervous system dysfunction and is a terminal disease which affects just one in 73 million people.

Organiser Kirsty McGregor-Burns said: “It was for such a worthwhile cause. I want to thank everyone who took part, from the volunteers to the girls at Dermica. They refused to take anything and offered their time, professionalism and premises. Hopefully with each pound raised we can find a cure sooner rather than later.”
