Our Chosen Charity

Registered Charity: 1176363

The Lions Barber Collective is an international collection of top barbers, which have come together to help raise awareness for the prevention of suicide. It all stemmed from a comment on a Facebook group and within 6 weeks we had our first appearance at The Great British Barber Bash in Liverpool, where members of the pride donated their time to demonstrate their skills and raise awareness about the mission of Barber Talk, as well as the charities we work alongside Papyrus and Pieta House in the UK and Ireland.

The Lions Barber Collective Artistic Team will be producing an annual “LOOK BOOK” in which chosen members will donate a hair image. The much anticipated collaboration will be sold with the proceeds going to our charities and future projects, training and development.

In this short time, through The Lions Barber Collective huge reach on social media, we have managed to create huge awareness to the cause, with that awareness ever growing and more events being planned all the time. We will attend many industry shows as well as festivals and create events, seminars and workshops to help promote Barber Talk and the work we will be doing. The Lions Barber Collective is a perfect vehicle for our Barber talk training as we have the very best in the industry, many who have been affected by the subject in matter themselves, all with a large following ready to help spread the word and smash the taboo subject of mental health and suicide.

Good Morning All,

As there have been a few queries relating to our online competition I just wanted to help clear some things up.

1. The only winner that is based on donations is ‘Best in Show’, the 6 categories are being judged by a panel and donations will not be part of these results.
2. All the donations are going to The Lions Barber Collective mental health charity directly through Just Giving so none of these are going to the running or prizes for the event.
3. The majority of the prizes and all the postage is being covered from the sponsorship budget provided by our headline sponsor Honest Amish for the live event next year, the prizes will be event merchandise so the more we raise the more we can justify to use from the budget, the only prize which is not from this is a personal character design for the winner of Best in Show which is being provided by a graphic designer at no cost.
4. The reason the judges are secret until the results are announced is so they can judge without interruption as they are very kindly giving their own time to score the categories for us.
5. A number of the judges are competitors, however none of them are judging a category that they are competing in, this is common place at live beard competitions, it is also not the reason the judges are being kept secret until the results are announced.
6. Most importantly this is a fun charity event to be enjoyed, we have nothing to hide and have and will answer questions openly and honestly, the organisers of the event are working as volunteers and doing this all in their own time.
We do this as we care and it is something positive we can do, particularly when times are so hard for everyone.
I personally do this as it is something good I can do as I have and do suffer with mental health issues and doing something positive helps me.
Please ask if you have any questions, and remember to enjoy and vote for your Best in Show
