Style and charity combined perfectly at South Holland Post 16 Centre where students hosted an open day to help needy people in the area.
Beauty therapy students welcomed clients to the centre last Friday to launch its new vocational courses and raise money for Agape Care Foodbank based at The Lighthouse Church in Spalding.
Clients sampled various treatments throughout the day, including aromatherapy, body and head massage, airbrush make-up and tanning.
There was also a raffle and cake stall which raised about £50 for the Foodbank in time for this year’s Christmas Appeal which ends today.
Nicky Marks, centre administrator, said: “It was a very successful day and quite a few members of the public brought food parcels in which was really nice.
“New and existing clients came along to support us and see some of the advanced treatments our new courses have.
“The foodbank is a charity we’ve supported in the past and the clients were really excited about what we were doing.”
Today is your last chance to leave donations at foodbank centres in Spalding and The Market House, Market Street, Long Sutton, or at the Lincolnshire Free Press and Spalding Guardian offices in The Crescent, Spalding.
