Students treat Minsthorpe ILS residents to manicure
11 December 2014
Beauty Therapy students from Minsthorpe Community College gave residents at WDH’s Independent Living Scheme, Farfield Court, a free manicure this week.
Nine trainees aged 16 and over visited the scheme as part of a partnership which has seen the organisations work together for the past four years – providing students with training, and residents with an enjoyable activity to take part in.
Jane Gwilliam, WDH Tenant Involvement Officer, said: “The manicures have been really well received by residents. Not only are they supporting good health and wellbeing generally, it’s proven really popular."
Kath Hawley, Course Leader for Beauty Therapy, said: “It’s great that the girls are able to go out into the community to practice because it helps them develop their communication and interpersonal skills. Usually they will practice on each other, so this offers valuable experience.”
