NULC Cancer Awareness Week 22 – 26 April 2013



In September 2012 the Fresh Hair Wig Salon founder Fiona Ford, and her Salon Manager (Gaynor Muir) met Hair & Beauty students during induction week.  They spoke about the need for the work they currently undertake from a temporary salon for Cancer patients receiving chemotherapy who have lost or are losing their hair.   

Throughout the year, supporting local organisation Soroptomists revisited groups again and shared further information about the salon’s charity and their need to raise funds to build their own salon over at the hospital (UHNS).  They asked for students to support them with their challenge. 

To publicise the activities they invited Graphics students to enter a competition to design a poster for Hair & Beauty student’s fundraiser.  

Student Laura Gardiner entered the winning poster as a series of three.






Fellow Graphics student Marcus Flynn designed a fantastic piece of animation, follow the link to his work on I-site http://i-site.nulc.ac.uk/file.php/686/Final_Video.mp4

In total £332.18 was raised by asking clients at the transform salon to donate 20% of their fee, Health & Social Care students sold Fresh Hair "Dare to Bare" wristbands on Cancer Awareness stalls throughout the week.

To say thank you for their much needed support Fiona, Gaynor and their client Lesley joined students to deliver a Wig Fitting Master class in the Auditorium.
