Learners and staff at BDC took part in fundraising activities for Red Nose Day.
Errol Parker, Curriculum Manager for Sport, was one of several staff members to put themselves in the firing line for wet sponges to be thrown at them. This activity went down well with learners on a chilly March day, with ‘Splat the Teacher’ raising £52.
Beauty Therapy, Hairdressing and Media Make-up learners offered mini treatments, including nail file and polishes; Media Make-up learners offering face painting; Hairdressing learners offering glitter plaits, raising £50 for the charity.
Beauty Therapy learner James Cole, 24, helped by carrying out arm massages, for a small donation in aid of charity.
As well as raising money for a great cause, the activity gave learners valuable work experience developing their employability skills and confidence in their technical skills, which are all vital for their qualification achievement and success in the industry.
Sarah Harris, Beauty lecturer said: “The students did a great job; we got lots of nice feedback on the mini treatments and raised money for a worthy cause, as well!”
