A group of 12 hair and beauty students from Warwickshire College have been visiting Warwick Hospital to offer massages, manicures and hairstyling to patients.
The learners are working with Kissing It Better, a national charity that enables local community members to use their specialist skills to make a difference to the care of patients and carers in hospitals and care homes.
Carole Richardson, technical academy manager for hair and beauty at Warwickshire College, said: “We are thrilled with the initial success of our partnership with Kissing it Better and hope this continues for years to come.
“It’s extremely rewarding to see the smiles on the patients’ faces, and it’s fantastic to see our students developing their skills in a very different environment.”
