Thank you

Hello everyone, 
Aaron’s shop is now back up and running. To celebrate we popped over with a few glasses of wine and mince pies. The shop is looking lovely and Aaron is extremely happy with his warm and welcoming new work space that you’ve all helped him get back.

This will be the last post from the Keep Aaron Cutting team, so we’d like to take the opportunity to thank everyone involved. Diamond Build did an amazing job, Aaron’s nephew Eddie Biber who has helped enormously, and thank you to everyone at BBH who started the project and worked for months to get it where it is today.

Lastly to those of you who donated, thank you so much. Over two thirds of your money rebuilt Aaron’s shop which is keeping him safe, working and telling his stories.

Aaron believes that young people can do great things if given the chance, this is why he has decided that he would like a portion of the money raised to go to the Bruce Grove Youth Centre, around the corner from the barbershop. He benefitted from a similar local club in his younger days and feels today’s youth deserves that opportunity too.

We wanted to show something good could come out of something bad, and we think with your help and Aaron’s, together we have. Do pop in for a haircut now and again. 

Merry Christmas and Happy Hanukkah
The Keep Aaron Cutting Team
