Hair and Beauty students give free treatments to carers for Valentine's Day

Carers from across Epsom and Ewell were invited to Nescot on Valentine’s Day for free pampering by Level 2 and 3 Hair and Beauty students.

People who are supported by charity Carers of Epsom visited the salon for appointments between 9.30am and 5pm, with treatments including hair cuts, Indian head massage, facials, manicures and pedicures as well as the gift of a single red rose.

The 35 carers made donations to Help for Heroes, with the students also selling wristbands and home-made cakes in aid of the charity.

The event raised £242 for the charity.

Claire Robertson, manager of Carers of Epsom, said: “Caring for a loved one can be hugely stressful and pressured and usually means that carers put everyone’s needs above their own.

“That’s why days like this are so important, because carers really deserve to be able to relax and be pampered, and to be able to put themselves first for a change.”

Carers of Epsom supports carers in the borough of Epsom and Ewell and in Banstead, with clients ranging from young couples who have children with disabilities to older people looking after their spouses.

The charity offers free services ranging from help and support accessing appropriate benefits and advice on lifting and handling to emotional support.

The pampering day is the second organised by Nescot and Carers of Epsom. Last year the day raised £144 for the Make a Wish Foundation.
