The Selkirk-based Scottish H.A.R.T. charity found itself well and truly pampered when a student of Telford College in Edinburgh chose them as her favoured recipient of a special day in the education establishment’s calendar.
Selkirk resident Rebekah Turnbull, who is attending the college’s hairdressing and beauty department where she is a third-year student, has a placement once a week at Haircraft in the town’s High Street. It was there that she handed over a collection can containing £170.30 to Wilma Gunn MBE, founder and national chairman of Scottish H.A.R.T.
This was the amount Rebekah collected during her part in the annual Pampered Day where students are encouraged to support charities and also to have their clients who come to the college for the day to have their hair styled or their nails done, or facials and beauty treatments.
