Staff and students at Walsall College turned bright pink today, as they staged a series of themed events to support Breakthrough Breast Cancer.

Hair and Beauty students (including Becky Revill and Kirsty King, pictured) used their talents to help the charity by offering pink nail painting and pink make-up, in return for donations.

Students also held a raffle, a cake sale and wore pink to try and raise as much as possible for the charity.

Pink Friday events are held across the UK every year during October as part of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and every penny raised is used to support people affected by breast cancer.

Technician Samantha Dugmore said: "Support from students and staff has been fantastic. Breast Cancer charities are close to the hearts of many people and it is great to see students using the talents they have acquired on their courses to help save lives."
