Hair, Beauty and Sports students from Eastleigh College this week gave their support to Asda's Tickled Pink campaign, raising money for two breast cancer care charities.
Asda's Tickled Pink campaign is in its 17th year with both customers and staff having raised over £30 million for registered charities 'Breast Cancer Care' and 'Breast Cancer Campaign'. Following on from a successful event the College hosted at Asda in Fareham, the students were invited to the Eastleigh store.
Students provided demonstrations including nail file and polish, massage and hair styling as well as collecting donations in Asda, Eastleigh.
Level 3 Hairdressing student Nicki Cotton said, "I'm really enjoying the course and this type of event gives us the opportunity to practise our skills - and for a good cause."
Kalpana Srinivasan of Chandlers Ford had her hair styled by the students, commenting, "I've never had my hair in curls before! I only moved to the area a week ago and have been looking at colleges, so it's been useful finding out about the courses available and helping the charity at the same time. I'm really pleased I came along!"
