Community centre users enjoyed a relaxing pampering day with level two beauty therapy students from South Cheshire College.

The learners provided manicures, pedicures and massages free-of-charge at The Georges Community Centre, in Crewe.

They were invited along by the Wishing Well Project, which organises community-led activities that help improve the health, wellbeing and personal development of local residents.

Sandra Smith, beauty therapy lecturer, said: “The benefits of supporting the Wishing Well Project were two-fold.

“We were supporting the community and helping learners get the experience of working with people that they needed at the same time.”

Beauty therapy student Charlotte Galloway, aged 19, said: “We met people from a wide range of backgrounds and I found it really rewarding and touching.”
