Beauty students support BBC Children in Need at B&Q
Commenting on the fundraising, Islay King, Schools and Charities Co-ordinator said, "B&Q are one of the main partners of BBC Children in Need and we were delighted to be able to offer the opportunity for the Eastleigh College beauty students to come up to the Store Support Office and help us fundraise. We are hoping to smash our head office target of £5,000 to meet B&Qs total pledge of over £500,000."
Liberty Pitman, Level 3 BTEC Diploma in Beauty Therapy student added, "I've enjoyed going out of College and now practising what we've learnt in a different environment. It's been fun meeting people outside of College today."
Vanessa Parker, Beauty Lecturer, added, "Events like these are great for the students as it gets them out of the classroom and into industry. It's helping the College build links with a local employer, promoting our beauty therapy services and, of course, BBC Children in Need is a fantastic charity to support".
