The seven level one learners went to Flamborough Day Centre, in Southsea Road, to pamper the centre users and help them raise funds for the facility through a raffle and tea and coffee.
The session was organised by Police Community Support Officer Bev Feirn and  followed a similar event carried out by college learners one year ago.

One of the students, Kirsty Fells, 16, Bridlington, said: "I really enjoyed the visit and chatting with the ladies. 
"It was nice that the treatments we offered were appreciated by the ladies and it was nice to carry out some work outside of College." 

Tutor Tina Mount said: "This was excellent experience for our students as it's important that they learn their craft by practising on real people.
"The ladies at the day centre really appreciated a bit of free pampering and it was great that the students were able to use their skills to benefit members of the community."

PCSO Feirn  who organised the session, said: "This was a fantastic event and it was nice to see the young students engaging with the ladies and improving there skills. "We hope to work with the college in the future and to hopefully organise future activities for the centre.
