Local Business Man and Barber, Bav Thakrar contacted us earlier on in the year having been inspired by the story of 82 year old Jo Samirez, known as Jo the Barber. Jo is a retired Real Estate Investor, who set up free weekly barbering in Bushnell Park, Hartford, Connecticut for the homeless when he saw there was a need, he powers his tools with an old car battery.
Having been motivated by Jo, Bav comes along to Y Base once a month to offer free barbering and a bit of a pamper and what a transformation we have seen. Everyone seems to be walking that little bit taller and do they look good?
Thanks Bav, this is just the kind of support that creates a great community.
If you have or know of anyone with a skill who would like to help out, please let us know.
