American Crew is delighted to announce that it will be supporting this year’s Barbersride 2022 as one of its Associate Sponsors. Taking place on 6 August, more than 40 barbers will take to their wheels to raise money for the Make-A-Wish charity.
Bonded by a love of barbering and motorbikes, UK’s Barbersride is an annual charity event incorporating a six-day ride around the UK. This year it will be travelling from Weston-super-Mare, via Cornwall, Devon, Southampton, Sussex and finishing up in Margate. During the 1200-mile trek, the barbers will enjoy the camaraderie of a road trip by day and inspiring barbering seminars in the evenings.
BarbersRide was started by a group of barbers that wanted to combine their love of biking and barbering with a fundraising charity event. In August 2017 the first event kicked off, from Dundee to London over five days and was a resounding success, raising over £10,000. Since then, every year has got bigger and better.
Now in its sixth year, the ride has raised £86,000 for charity to date. Today, the ride has become as much about the journey as the evenings spent getting up close and personal with some of the country’s best-known barbering names and sharing a passion for men’s hair.
Nick Biggane from American Crew, says: “We’re delighted to provide products and support for this great cause. Barbersride shows a real sense of team spirit and not only shines a spotlight on our fantastic British barbering network, but also raises funds for this special charity.”
Make-A-Wish helps grant wishes for sick children when they are most in need and bring positivity and happiness in times of distress. In 2021, BarbersRide raised more than £27,000 for the charity, one of the biggest single donations the charity received last year.
