Rio Ferdinand Foundation participants hold ‘Pamper Day’

Salford, UK – Young people currently engaged on the Rio Ferdinand Foundation-supported hair and beauty training programme in Salford will hold a special charity ‘Pamper Day’ on Friday 2nd August in memory of their very close friend Linzi Ashton who was recently murdered in Salford.

All donations no matter how big or small will mean a beauty treatment, but those who donate a minimum of £5 will also receive a free raffle ticket for the chance of winning TWO tickets to the Rio Ferdinand Testimonial match between Manchester United and Sevilla at Old Trafford on Friday 9th August.

404 Not Found The day, which takes place from 12pm-2pm at the Salford Opportunity Centre in Paddington Close, Salford, was the idea of Michelle Arstall, one of those young people on the programme and Rio Ferdinand Foundation Ambassador who is also a close friend of Linzi’s family.

All proceeds from the event will go to the Linzi Ashton Memorial Fund set up in Linzi’s memory to benefit her two young children, Daisy and Destiny.

Everyone who is a member of the Salford Opportunity Centre is being invited to attend so they can be pampered by staff, including Rio Ferdinand Foundation Salford project participants who recently passed their Level 1 Nail Technician course.

Michael Nyarko, Head of Operations for the Rio Ferdinand Foundation said:
“The young people wanted to do something for Linzi and all felt this would be a small way in which to honour their friend’s memory and do something for her children.

“It also gives them an opportunity to give something back to their community and friends by practising their newly-learned skills, plus it promotes the work of the Foundation in the local area.”

The young people involved will also be selling £5 raffle tickets to their friends and family who cannot attend, plus future events are planned at other youth centres and venues which will be open to all.
