David Donkin


David started Palmersville in March 2011 With guidance and support David built up his confidence, achieved his targets and with one to one support in Hairdressing skills, achieves excellent communication with his clients. David is a well mannered and well liked member of the Hairdressing group with an excellent attendance record.

Since starting at Palmersville, David has recently started an employed Apprenticeship with The Cutting Crew Hair Salon who are very supportive. David is requested by clients to do their hair and has started to build up a list of regulars. David’s self esteem has also improved due to comments made by clients asking for him to do their hair.

David is due to complete is apprenticeship in 2013 and we are hopeful that he keeps his employment with The Cutting Crew as they have been a vital part of his development.
