Students charity fundraising

Students set their stall out for charity fundraising

Hair and beauty students are to set up stall at a North Staffordshire shopping mall.

Foundation level students on the introductory hair and beauty course at Stoke on Trent College will be selling natural products such as lip balms and bath bombs at Freeport, Talke, on Saturday, 17 March.

Proceeds from the sale will be split between the Douglas Macmillan Hospice, Blurton, Stoke-on-Trent, and the college’s Foundation Studies Student Enterprise Fund.

The stall will be situated close to the Home Bargains store at Freeport between 10am and 5.30pm.

Yvonne Clarke said: “Many of our students may well go on to manage or own their own hair and beauty businesses and this real world enterprise, making and then selling the products, is ideal experience for them.

“They have been working hard making up beauty products from kits, gift wrapping and pricing the products.”

There will be 14 students taking part, split into morning and afternoon groups.  The students, aged between 16 and 24 are all on Access To Training foundation programmes.

The Douglas Macmillan Hospice is the college’s chosen charity for 2012 while money raised for the Enterprise Fund will be used to stage an end of year awards evening, buffet and disco.
