Students at North Kent College have started fundraising for a local charity by getting their clippers out and creating a range of hairstyles for a charity calendar.

Barbering students held a photo shoot with the help of Gravesend Camera Club to help raise money for Little Buds.

The neo-natal unit at Darent Valley Hospital helps new-borns get the best start in life by providing specialist care.

To help raise the money, students created hairstyles and make-up which followed themes from film and theatre shows including Grease, Phantom of the Opera and more.

Once the the calendar is published, students will continue to raise funds by selling them on in the local community to family and friends.

A spokesperson said that the barbering learners chose Little buds as “they felt smaller local charities can sometimes be overlooked.”

Lecturer on the barbering course, Peter Josh said: “I feel that the evening was a huge success and all the students put in a huge amount of effort.

“All the finished looks were very creative. It has been lovely to see the students develop their newly acquired skills over the last year and I fell confident they are ready to take their place in the industry.”
