Daniel Rymer Male Grooming in Bristol has partnered with a local charity Caring in Bristol, to help make some extra money for Cheers Drive, the UK’s first-ever food delivery service for the homeless which is a completely free service.
COVID-19 new barber shop and hair salon safety measures include PPE for staff and customers. Daniel’s salon has decided that instead of charging their customers for PPE, they’re going to take the hit, and ask customers instead to donate a minimum of £1 to Caring in Bristol.
Led by Josh Eggleton of the Michelin- starred Pony and Trap, along with some of Bristol’s most established chefs and cooks, Cheers Drive is supplying free food to the homeless and vulnerable.
How can the hair industry contribute to helping other food banks?
Daniel said “Over the past few weeks I’ve seen lots of salons worrying about the new rules, and whether they should pass on the cost of PPE and social distancing signage to their customers. I decided that we would keep our prices at the salon, but will use this as an opportunity to help make a difference to the city and the homeless community by developing a Care Pack that we will ask customers to make a minimum £1 donation to Caring in Bristol”.
In their Care Pack Daniel’s customers can expect a take away face mask, a gown, vouchers containing offers and discounts from other local businesses and salon product freebies from the brands Daniel stocks.
Caring in Bristol Head of Development Edd Smith said:
“Those without homes have become more vulnerable than ever during COVID19, not only because they don’t have a safe home to self-isolate, but they are three times more likely to have a chronic health condition than you or I. Which is why as a local charity Caring in Bristol has sprung into action, the donations from these Care packs will support us caring for around 400 homeless and vulnerably housed people each day and campaigning for their future. Our vision is a city empowered to solve homelessness and working with engaged businesses like Daniel Rymer and their clients is a great way to put that into action.”
