Barking and Dagenham College Beauty Therapy Level 2 students raised more than £400 for the Child Brain Injury Trust on Thursday from 3pm offering some 60 visitors to the college’s salon a range of treatments from manicures to waxing.

Bradley’s cousin Leighann Snell, 21, a beauty therapy student at the college, said: “It was great fun pampering so many locals at the event. But even more amazing to raise so much money for the charity that has been helping my cousin.”

Professional boxer Kevin Mitchell was a special guest and gave a pair of signed boxing gloves for Bradley.

Bradley Trimmer, 14, was hit by a car in High Road, Chadwell Heath, earlier this year leaving him with lasting brain damage.
