Going to great lengths to support the community

15 April, 2021 9:41 am

Barbering students at Keighley College are offering free haircuts to the local community.

In a bid to help build the confidence of local individuals following the pandemic, Level 2 students will be running this initiative until the end of May.

Caroline McGreavy, apprenticeship assessor coach at the college, is launching this initiative for the second time over the past year.

“When we first offered free haircuts in September, it was fantastic to see the positive uptake from people in the area. During a time when many people are struggling, it’s important to give back to the community and help individuals feel empowered. 

“This service also gives Barbering Level 2 students the opportunity to develop practical skills and build their local clientele. It’s the perfect chance to enhance their abilities while engaging with people in the area.”

All students will be following government guidelines including appropriate use of personal protective equipment and sterilised equipment.
