The Rothesay students studying SVQ Hairdressing held a successful charity event in March in aid of the John O’Byrne Foundation. 

 Third-year hairdressing organised a charity event as part of her course and chose to support the John O’Byrne Foundation – a charity which helps bring happiness to children who attend the Royal Hospital for Sick Children in Glasgow as it has helped her family in the past and is close to her heart.  The charity can support families in a range of ways, including helping towards family holidays, days out whatever the children’s wishes may be.

 Lynsey enlisted the help of her fellow students, and on the day they offered a range of services including shampoo and blow-dry, cutting hair, braids and hair-ups, a raffle stall, and a wide variety of refreshments available to clients.

The event was held in a local Hairdressers – Diane’s Hair Salon, who kindly allowed the college to take over her salon for the day and also worked along with the students when the salon was busy.

 Tutor Emma Graham and all the students would like to thank Diane and everyone who generously donated raffle prizes, and also all the customers who came in and supported the charity event.  The amount raised on the day was a massive £422.50!

Emma said, ‘The students ran a really successful day for all involved and I feel very proud of them all. I want to say a special thank you to Lynsey, Meygan, Angela, Kayleigh, and Ramona who all worked hard throughout the day – really well done!’
