Haircuts and nail jobs help African school

Stylists and estheticians donate their services for charity

Staff at two Bay Centre beauty retailers are donating their time this Saturday (Sept. 10) to raise money to help educate former child soldiers in Liberia.

Proceeds from haircuts and nail treatments at Salon Novo and Eco Chic will go to Victoria-based Village Ministries. The registered charity organization has built a vocational school in the impoverished West African nation and is fundraising to purchase supplies for its programs in agriculture, carpentry, autobody mechanics and tailoring.

The fundraiser runs from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. in the lower foyer of the mall. For more information, visit www.villageministries.net or call 250-595-2881.
