The young at heart group were treated to a day of pampering courtesy of John Ruskin College Hair & Beauty students! Students on our Hair & Media Make-Up Level 3 and Body & Spa Therapy Level 3 courses were excited to practice the skills they had learnt, whilst giving back to the Croydon community.
The Intergenerational Event is run in partnership with the Manju Shahul-Hameed Foundation and the Croydon BME Forum, coinciding with our celebration of Black History Month.
Our guests received a warm welcome from Councillor and Cabinet Member Manju Shahul-Hameed who noted; “This event demonstrates the coming together of the older and younger generations and is a great opportunity to build on the strengths that different generations have to offer to one another.”
Held in the College’s modern training salon, The Atrium, our guests were treated to a range of mini pamper treatments including massages, manicures, blow drys and make-up sessions, followed by lunch in the College café.
The event also featured a lively Q&A session where our students and guests were able to talk with one another to learn more about their backgrounds and life stories and share advice that could be passed on.
