A group of Hairdressing students from Brooksby Melton College are hosting a Gentlemen Only day at BMC’s Reflections Hair Salon on Monday 19th June in the hope of raising money and awareness for a male cancer charity.
The students, who have organised and promoted the event themselves, will be offering a selection of barbering services including haircuts, beard and moustache trims, and hair and scalp treatments, with a minimum donation of £1.50 required. In addition, every person who books an appointment will be automatically entered into a raffle, meaning every participant will be in with a chance to win a range of luxury prizes.
All of the money raised at this event will go to Orchid, the UK’s leading charity for male cancer. Orchid aims to save the lives of men via pioneering research and by raising awareness about testicular, prostate and penile cancers.
Level 3 Hairdressing student Bev Seymour commented ‘One of our additional units in our Level 3 Hairdressing course is Barbering Level 2, and we have also been assigned to organise a promotional event. My fellow students and I have decided to combine these two units and run a Gentleman’s Only day at BMC. By holding this event we want to raise awareness about Orchid and help save men’s lives through the money raised, which we hope will be at least £50. We have also decided to hold a raffle to raise awareness about the event, which offers luxury prizes and will also be open to the general public’.
Emma Balch, Hairdressing lecturer at BMC, said ‘The Level 3 hairdressing students have organised a fundraising event for men only. They are doing this to raise awareness and collect donations for Orchid – the aim is to raise between £50 and £100 on the day. This ties together well with their qualification as they are required to organise a promotional event for one of their assessments. The event also raises the profile of the BMC Hairdressing department and the services we offer. Alongside offering barbering treatments, the students will also be providing cake and refreshments for all clients on the day. The morning is already fully booked however we still have limited afternoon and evening appointments available!’
