Guests enjoying the pamper event

Travel & Tourism, Hospitality and Hair & Beauty students at Bracknell & Wokingham College hosted their annual fundraising Christmas pamper and dinner.

The charity of choice for this year, the Ollie Young Foundation. A UK registered charity funding targeted paediatric brain tumour research and support.

In the morning guests were treated to a wash and blow dry in the Harmony Hair Salon, before being seated for a Christmas dinner with all the trimmings, including homemade Christmas pudding, cooked by Hospitality students and served by Travel & Tourism students. Visitors could then finish off their relaxing day with a treatment in the Harmony Beauty salon. 

Staff also joined the students the next day for a Christmas Coffee Morning where cakes, biscuits and pies, again cooked and served by the students, were on offer to continue raising funds. Students raised a total of £234.42 for the charity.

Dawn Harrage, Hospitality and Travel & Tourism Lecturer, was proud of the efforts the students put in to guarantee the smooth running of the events:

“The students have learnt valuable employability skills through organising these events and have done a great job along the way. They’ve had to work together and communicate effectively with each other, ensuring timings so things don’t run behind or too quickly, and all the while keeping a high level of customer service.” 

Arti Damji, 49, Bracknell, enjoyed her visit to the college and feels that offers of day experiences like these are a special occurrence:

“The students have been so professional throughout the day, it’s been a wonderful experience. My hair looks great, the food was delicious and my nails look lovely. Having the opportunity to get away from your worries for a while and have a good pamper is great. I’ve enjoyed every minute of it.”
