OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERASarah Glover, the director of the Charity, Born to be Beautiful, attended the CCR Expo on Saturday 11 October to present Aesthetic Source with a photograph, representing the work of the Charity, as a token of its gratitude for the ongoing support provided by Aesthetic Source in the past year.

Born to be Beautiful is a registered charity providing beauty therapy training and skills to victims of abject poverty and modern day slavery, restoring dignity and hope to lives devastated by exploitation.

Handing the photograph to Lorna Bowes, director at Aesthetic Source, Sarah said:

“This photograph is not only a gesture of our thanks for all the support we have received from Aesthetic Source; more importantly it is intended to act as a reminder of the big difference its support makes to the Born to be Beautiful Charity and the positive effect it has on our work to help women in India and Africa escape poverty and the perils of human trafficking.

“Being a small Charity we are totally reliant on our sponsors and it is wonderful that Aesthetic Source is able to continue to help us. We welcome support in all its forms be it training materials, uniforms or runners who take part in events to raise money on our behalf.”

Lorna Bowes said “Aesthetic Source embraces its association with Born to be Beautiful because in the busy, flourishing aesthetics industry it keeps us grounded. This photograph is a very poignant reminder of the difference our support can make in providing vital skills and training to women giving them the means to escape poverty and prostitution by setting up their own beauty businesses. It means they can carve out and build new and better lives for themselves and their families.”

The Born to be Beautiful Charity was set up in 2011 by Sarah Glover, following a trip to observe the work of another charity, Vision Rescue, which, as part of its work set up safe houses to alleviate human trafficking.
