Hair and beauty students from the College of Haringey, Enfield and North East London held a charity week from 23 to 27 May 2016. All the funds from the hair and beauty treatments went to the Enfield Food Bank, an amazing total of £819 was raised.
The hairdressing students provided cuts, hair treatments, styling, blow drying and colouring hair services. The Level 2 beauty students provided pamper sessions comprising of manicures, facials, pedicures and eye treatments and the Level 3 students performed electrical facials, slimming treatments, body massages and Indian head massages. All treatments were carried out on external clients, members of staff, family and friends. Students also brought in contributions of food, baby products and toiletries for Enfield Food Bank.
Enfield Food Bank provides emergency food for local people in crisis and helps people in need get back on their feet. Enfield Food Bank is run by Trussell Trust who last year gave over a million three-day emergency food supplies to people in crisis in the UK.
Kerry Coe, Manager of Enfield Food Bank visited the hair and beauty classes during the charity week and enjoyed a relaxing hair treatment by CONEL’s Hairdressing students on her visit. Kerry stated: “What the students are doing is brilliant! The funds raised will be a great help to provide emergency food for local people who come to us in need of help.”
Maria Hadjinicolaou, Curriculum Manager for Hairdressing and Beauty Therapy at our Enfield Centre stated: “The students did a superb job to raise over £800 for charity. They really enjoyed carrying out the treatments and being involved in raising money for such a worthwhile cause’.
