HoW College students treat Primrose volunteers to pamper day

Ross Crawford 26th May, 2019

HEART of Worcestershire College’s (HoW College) hair and beauty students in Redditch treated Primrose Hospice volunteers to a pamper day as a thank you for helping to run the local Redditch Primrose Hospice shop.

The volunteers were welcomed by the students before being whisked off to have hair and nail treatments.

Once they were all glammed up, they headed for the college’s Archers Restaurant where they enjoyed tea and cake.

Primrose Volunteer of 14 years, Sue Bird said: “Today has been an absolutely amazing, a perfect treat and the students were great!”

Last November HoW College teamed up with Primrose Hospice and opened an onsite shop.

The volunteers support its Special Education Needs (SEN) students with the running of the shop, which in turn helps raise money for the hospice.

Hair and Beauty Tutor, Susan Vernon said: “This is a great opportunity to say thank you to the Primrose volunteers, as well as giving our students more opportunities to work with clients.

“In the future we would like to continue this, and offer more pamper days as a treat for the volunteers.”
