National charity to benefit from students’ endeavours

Staff and students at West Nottinghamshire College’s Lifestyle Academy will be giving up their time and skills to support a national charity next week.

Trainee chefs, catering supervisors, beauty therapists and hairdressers will be raising funds for Macmillan Cancer Support’s World’s Biggest Coffee Morning through a whole range of activities on Friday (27 September).

As well as hosting competitions throughout the day, students in the Revive salons will be offering mini hand and head massages, hair curling, straightening and take-ups from just 50p. A 20% discount off any treatment will be offered with the money going to the charity.

There will also be a sponsored leg waxing at 3pm where male hospitality and supervision student Alex Roberts will endure the pain of hair removal to gather in more cash for charity.

Cakes, coffee and other tasty treats will be available in the Refined restaurant throughout the day. A themed menu will be available in the evening at 6.30pm and 7.30pm sittings costing £30 per head and features live music and a guest speaker from the Macmillan charity.

All activities are open to the public and will start from 9am at the college’s Derby Road campus.

Head of the Lifestyle Academy Amanda Jogela said: “There’s so much happening in the curriculum area and it will be wonderful to have all of our students together supporting this worthwhile national campaign.

“We’re delighted to welcome members of the public to come and support the activities and take advantage of some of the great treatments that we will have available. It’s the perfect opportunity to come and see more of our new facilities.”
