Hundreds of visitors flocked to the College of Haringey, Enfield and North East London last week to get pampered while raising funds for vital charities, Victim Support and children's cancer charity CLIC Sargent.

A range of hairdressing and beauty therapy treatments were offered at the College's Enfield Centre for varying prices, while for a minimum donation of £2 visitors at the Tottenham Centre received manicures, makeovers, massages and anti-ageing treatments.

Students at the Tottenham Centre worked hard washing, blow-drying and pampering a steady stream of visitors in the Style Zone and Salon.

Fozia Mahmood, Theatrical Media Make-Up Diploma VTCT Level 3 learner, transformed youthful Performing Arts student, Darran Greenwood, into an elderly Big Issue seller.  She did such a great job even Darran’s classmates did not recognise him!

Fozia (pictured with  Darran) said of the Tottenham Centre Charity Day: “Days like this are great. They cheer everybody up, they appeal to young people, we can really show off what the College is doing and we also inspire people to come on our course.”

Darran said: “I’ve never had so much fun in education, I haven’t missed a day of my College course.”

While over in Enfield, Students were busy at work, while tutors dressed up in costume to add a fun element to the day.

Selen Latif, Hair and Beauty Level 2 student, pictured with Enfield Hairdressing tutors, Carol Chapman and Lynn Bayford who dressed as goddesses for the day, said: “I love the way our tutors got into the spirit of things and dressed up for the day. It was a lot of fun, while also allowing us to get so many our assessments completed.”

Anabela Garcia-Villaverde, Head of School for Hair and Beauty, said: “We worked hard organising the event and we raised a lot of money while also showing local residents what hair and beauty services we provide to the public at a very affordable cost."

She added: “While our students are training, they are fully supervised and in many cases have years of training behind them. The College offers a wide range of treatments Monday to Friday so part of this is about getting the word out there and allowing people who are struggling financially to still experience the luxuries of life.”

Overall, the Hair and Beauty Enfield students raised £900 for Victim Support and the College’s Tottenham students raised well over £300 for CLIC Sargent.
