On the 3rd of February 2018, MR Barbers Loughton decided to put their scissors and baking skills towards a great cause, and run a charity day for save the children. Every haircut, shave and fade was free, all that was asked you donated – and donate people did!
This was a full on day with lots of rain and drizzle but despite the weather, it was truly worth it as the team raised a staggering £809.37 for Save the Children. There was a fantastic turn out on the day with many locals stopping by for cuts and also to buy yummy cakes. Save the Children, is an international non-governmental organisation that promotes children rights, provides relief and helps support children in developing countries. It was established in the United Kingdom in 1919 in order to improve the lives of children through better education, healthcare, and economic opportunities, as well as providing emergency aid in natural disasters, war, and other conflicts.
Sam Prior – Founder and Co. Owner said, “We was thrilled to be running the event in aid of Save the Children. Knowing the money we raised will be used to improve the lives of vulnerable children throughout the UK is the best part of all.
This is just one of many events that MR Barbers have organised to raise money for national charities and will be holding another fundraising event @MR. Barbers ‘Bishop’s Stortford’ to raise funds and awareness for Air Ambulance on Sunday 18th February 2018.
