Students at the Derby Road-based salon raised £600.80 for The Lashes Foundation charity at an event, which included hair and beauty treatments, a prize raffle and refreshments.

All proceeds from the event are going to The Lashes Foundation, which was set up in honour of local girl Evie Wilson, who tragically lost her life in 2021, aged just 13.

Treatments such as manicures, massages and make-up application were provided by beauty therapy students, while hairdressing students got creative with hair curling appointments.

Guests were able to enjoy a range of hot and cold drinks and cakes provided by the students while relaxing in the salon’s reception area, before the raffle was drawn which included prizes such as goodies from Dunkin Donuts, beauty products, Sweets from Sweet Treats, tickets to Gulliver’s World, tickets to Nottingham-based ‘Axed’, the axe-throwing challenge and a voucher for Turtle Bay, a Caribbean inspired restaurant in Nottingham.

Merchandise from The Lashes Foundation, such as water bottles, lip balm, bags, pens and bracelets were on sale to guests, to raise additional funds.

Guest and client Lorraine Mitchell attended the fundraising event and enjoyed both a manicure and a make-over. She said: “It’s been so relaxing here today – I’m really enjoying being a client. I was a student here over 38 years ago, and it’s nice to see what the students in the salon today are doing in terms of training.”

Head of department for hair and beauty, Nicholas Thorpe, said: “The Easter fundraising afternoon was amazing. Students and staff worked brilliantly to provide a relaxing and friendly afternoon for our guests. Students worked very professionally in the salons to provide some wonderful mini treatments and we’re thrilled to be able to pass on over £600 to this local charity.
