SHOPPERS were treated to manicures and hair braiding at a Fareham supermarket by college students.

A group of hairdressing and sports students from Eastleigh College were at Asda supermarket in Fareham raising money for Asda’s Tickled Pink campaign.

The Tickled Pink campaign has been running for 16 years. It benefits two breast cancer charities – Breast Cancer Care and Breast Cancer Campaign.

The group of level 2 hairdressing and level 3 sports students were offering services such as face painting, nail painting, hair braiding, hair curling and fitness monitoring in exchange for donations.

Sports students also set up an interactive Batak board to test fitness and reaction levels.

The group raised £226.45 at the supermarket, and then a further £135 at the college, totalling £361.45.

Jas Kang, marketing project cordinator at Eastleigh College, said: ‘The students worked incredibly hard on preparing activities to attract customers.

‘To raise over £350 was a great achievement for them and all the staff involved.’

Lucky winners of a prize draw received hair straighteners and Fudge hair products gift sets.
