5th time at CACH Reunion

On Saturday 15th March, cherub braids were in attendance for the 5th time at CACH’s (Children Adopted From China) Reunion.

As always it was extremely busy. This is what they had to say about cherub braids:-

“Thank you for the fabulous hair braid for my daughter. There is always a fantastic choice of colours and she is always so sad when it has to be removed”. (Claire:-Kent)

“Thank you so much my daughter was thrilled and the the lady was so nice and kind to her”. (CT:-USA) 

“Always greeted with a friendly welcome by Leona and her team. The girls love the hair braids and extra decorations and Leona works hard to please everyone”.

“We love Leona and Shannel! They are not only brilliant at braiding, but make it great fun too. They are even prepared to do my mad husband’s hair to amuse the girls… how great is that?!”

 

 

Comic Relief Grant Awarded to Sister Company – Cherub Community Ventures (CIC)

Cherub Community Ventures(CIC)  has been awarded a grant to develop and facilitate an accredited VTCT braiding course for young people age 14 – 21 years.

It is hoped that the course will begin in 2014 and will give young people the opportunity to gain a level 2 qualification in ‘Plaiting and Twisting Hair’. The young people involved in the course will also have the opportunity to share their skills with parents and children within the community, in our ‘giving back’ element of the course.

So watch this space and cherub braids facebook page to see what’s happening. If you are interested in participating in the course send us an email or give us a call.

I am very excited!!!!

Lighthouse, Aston – Book cherub braids if you can!

If anyone following cherub braids gets the opportunity to host their exhibition please do. I work at The Lighthouse in Aston, Birmingham and we were privileged to host the braiding exhibition for a week. It was interesting seeing the early images of braiding and also a shame that we see less people with natural hair. My young people enjoyed the exhibition, but most of all they loved plaiting the hair of the dummies that came as part of the exhibition. I was shocked that so many girls knew how to braid! Thanks again cherub braids I hope we get the opportunity to work together again in the future.
