Students from Barking & Dagenham College have raised £230 with their beauty, hair and make-up skills.

They collected the cash on December 17 for Look Good Feel Better, a charity providing skin care and make-up workshops to people diagnosed with cancer and patients in remission.

The group did "mini treatments" including hand and arm massages, scalp massages, leg and foot massages and nail painting for fellow students, staff and the public, with any donations going to the charity.
