Barbers Against Hunger gears up for food bank event.
Hairstylists Against Hunger has set up the Barbers Against Hunger event, and like all their work, it aims to gather donations for the Glasgow SE food bank.
Hairstylists Against Hunger’s sole purpose is to inform people and raise awareness about the how many people are now dependent on food banks in the UK and Ireland. Now they are holding Barbers Against Hunger to further that quest.
The Glasgow SE food bank is a project ran by the Trussell Trust, this is a network that aims to aid churches and local organisations in bringing food banks to the UK. Currently they have set up 400 in their network. Barber’s Against Hunger have made this food bank their focus and have scheduled the event for the 27th of June.
The event will run between 1pm and 4pm in the Trades Hall of Glasgow (84 Glassford Steet). The Trades Hall of Glasgow is an iconic place for barbering as the barbering profession was recognised as a craft in Glasgow here. Defacto covered this and the gruesome history of barbering in THIS BLOG.
There will be no cost to the event, Barbers Against Hunger only ask that you bring food to donate to the cause. They have provided a list of preferred foods:
• Milk (UHT/Powdered)
• Sugar (500g)
