    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised

    Story

    Helping the homeless is something I have always been passionate about. I have been volunteering my time cutting the hair of Manchesters homeless community for some time now. I do this by inviting people into my shop Skullfades Barbers and you may have also seen me out and about on Manchesters streets.

    I am passionate about giving back to the community and think that everyone out there can do their bit to help others less fortunate in our society.

    The aim of this just giving page is to raise £5,000 which is needed in order to register as an official charity. The funds raised will be used to aid the homeless through various different projects. Skullfades barbershop have been assisting the homeless in different ways. We give people a free service that will hopefully give people more pride in their appearance, offer them support and inspire them to engage with other support services to build a more positive life for themselves. We also have a winter appeal to give Manchesters homeless community more appropriate clothing and sleeping bags for the colder months.

    Future plans will also see Skullfaders barbershop offering an apprenticeship scheme to the right person. This will give someone with a desire to change their life a productive skill in order to develop a stable income.

    Kind gestures really do make a massive difference to people.
    The amount of people homeless in today's society is shocking.

    Give back to society by helping the less fortunate and please donate whatever you can.

    Every little helps!.

      Hi folks, We are getting some really good reports back from charities and organisations that are working with our clients and its all great stuff. Big plans happening for next year, we are now starting our toy appeal for children and families in Colombia in association with Champs Barbers in London. There are so many poor families and children there, we are going to send them some positivity all the way from Manchester. You can drop your toys off at the shop or donate here. Lots of good is happening with your money. Big love Ged and Skullfades!
