Students came up with a hair-raising idea to support a children’s cancer charity.
Hairdressing pupils from Northumberland College held their annual hair show at Ashington High School in support of CLIC Sargent.
Every year students show off the skills they have learnt during the year by putting on a hair show, with this year’s theme being “Fairy Tales” as students gave their interpretation of Avant Guard hairstyles of wicked, wacky and wonderful characters of fairy tales of their choice.
All the money collected from tickets sales and a raffle went to CLIC Sargent, as part of the Big Buzz campaign.
Jan Marley, hairdressing lecturer at the college, said “The reason we have chosen to support CLIC Sargent is because they offer a great deal of support not only to the child but to the family as well.
“Often families are forgotten and it is hard enough bringing up a healthy child but even harder for a child with a serious illness. When a child is diagnosed with an illness such as cancer it touches everyone’s heart and this charity provides on-going support for everyone involved.”
CLIC Sargent’s Big Buzz campaign is all about having some hair-raising fun and raising vital funds to help support the thousands of families whose children are affected by cancer each year.
All proceeds from the hair show will help CLIC Sargent provide vital services, grants to help families meet extra costs and free UK holidays for families to share special times together.
