Uxbridge College students joined staff from British Airways at the grand reopening of the Harlington Hospice charity shop in West Drayton.

Nearly 50 staff from BA worked around the clock to repaint, reorganise and de-clutter the shop, and were joined by students for the official reopening.

The shop reopened on 12 November, with the Mayor of Hillingdon, Councillor Shirley Harper O'Neill, conducting the official opening ceremony.

The students from Uxbridge College, who are taking the BTEC National Diploma in Perfoming Arts - Styling for Stage, Screen and TV, gave free makeovers to members of the public. They also designed outfits using stock from the shop for a catwalk show with models from BA.

Stephanie Garland, Section Manager for Performing Arts at Uxbridge College, which has campuses in Uxbridge and Hayes, said: "This was a great opportunity for our students to use their skills to benefit the community. Students on this course are aiming for careers as make-up artists and stylists in television, film or theatre and any experience they can get working with real people is extremely valuable."
