Barbersride 2019 raises over 16K for Children’s Charity - Huzzah!

Posted on September 23, 2019 by Captain P. Fawcett

Captain Fawcett is thrilled to announce a simply magnificent achievement for this year’s Barbersride. Completing a hat trick, the third Barbersride was an absolute triumph, with funds speeding past the target to reach over £16,000 - and more donations are still coming in.  Huzzah!

On the 11th August a fine fellowship of mad-cap adventurers, united by their passion for bikes and barbering, set off on an epic 5 day mission across England to support Make-A-Wish which turns the dreams of seriously ill children to extraordinary real life magic.

Captain Fawcett is a founding member and key sponsor of Barbersride, an annual road trip adventure bringing barbers and bikers together on a journey of camaraderie and merry mayhem.  Days on the highway, battling all manner of wild and wonderful British weather, lead to evenings featuring an intimate seminar hosted by some of the most prestigious names in the barbering world.  And these are followed by legendary after parties with live music, auctions for superb sporting memorabilia and food and drinks to revive the saddle sore after fantastically formidable trails such as the notorious Snake Pass crossing the Pennines - a favourite with this year’s riders.

Past Rides have raised over £20,000 for The Lion’s Barber Collective plus London’s Great Ormond Street and Liverpool’s Alder Hey children’s hospitals.

In 2019 BarbersRide said: “Make A Wish grants special wishes for sick children when they are most in need and brings positivity and happiness in times of distress.  We really wanted to work with a national children’s charity this year so that children from each region could benefit – Make-A-Wish were the perfect organisation to partner with and we’ve had incredible support from our sponsors, our riders, the barbers and barbershops who have hosted seminars and of course the guests at every event.”
