PAMPERING TREATS ON OFFER AT ADVICE CENTRE
Visitors to a city centre advice and support service for the over-55s are in for some pampering treats – thanks to beauty students from City of Wolverhampton College.
The students – who are studying for a Level 3 qualification in beauty at the college’s Metro One campus in the city centre – will be offering free manicures and relaxing hand and arm, neck and shoulder, and Indian head massages at Life Direct in Victoria Street on Tuesday, January 20.
Treatments will be available from 10.30am to 1.30pm and will be offered on a first come first served basis.
Sarah Jones, beauty tutor at the college, said: “The treatments on offer will help to revitalise, de-stress and promote the personal wellbeing of clients and give our students the opportunity to demonstrate some of the skills they are learning on their course.”
Life Direct – commissioned by Wolverhampton City Council and run by leading housing provider whg – opened in April 2014 and aims to maintain the independence of people aged 55 and over by providing them with advice and support on everyday matters and linking them to a network of organisations across the city.
