Last month a group of Newton Abbot College students held a ‘Beauty of Fundraising’ day in aid of the College’s charity of the year, Rowcroft Hospice. As well as providing a range of beauty treatments, our third year Beauty students enlisted the help of others (Year 10 ASDAN group and first year Customer Service/Business students) to provide tea room facilities. The Beauty students offered a wide range of treatments such as waxing, massage, pedicure and facial and they held a raffle draw, thanks to some amazing prizes donated by College staff, friends and local businesses. Cakes had been generously donated to the ‘tea rooms’ and they managed to raise £55.00 bringing the grand total on the day to £385.33!
Lesley Ring, Assistant Principal and Head of Sixth Form, said “It was really fabulous to see so many students, parents and staff in Sixth Form House all thoroughly enjoying themselves and raising money for a good cause at the same time. The students can be very proud of the fact that they had an idea, ran with it and created such a worthwhile event”.
