Skill’s Centre Hairdressing learners also put on their walking shoes, as well as their fancy dress, for their sponsored walk into Halifax on Friday afternoon. They collected donations and made a guest appearance on Phoenix Radio along the way.

Many other learners around College organised a range of fundraising activities, from baking and selling cakes and cookies to wearing fancy dress and pyjamas and even wrestling in sumo suits. Together they raised around £800.
