The Lions Barber Collective raises awareness on mental health and suicide prevention, offering training to professionals to open the conversation on mental health behind the chair. As part of its support, Denman will sponsor education, pop-up events and key activities across the year, as well as supplying branded tools and donating a percentage of sales from every tool sold from the new professional barber range, Jack Dean by Denman, to the charity.
International sales director, Martyn Wady, said: “Mental health concerns and suicide sadly touch the lives of so many, including Denman’s own staff and our wider network of partners.”
Martin added: “We were actively seeking an opportunity to offer sponsorship and support to the cause and Tom’s incredible charity enables us to make a positive impact. We are grateful for all the work done by The Lions Barber Collective and excited about the year ahead.”
Founder of The Lions Barber Collective, Tom Chapman, said: “Like all charities our needs are always funding and awareness, this partnership with Denman offers much needed support on both counts and we can’t wait to see what we can achieve together.”
The Lions Barber Collective offers education and support to help barbers create shop environments that are a safe space for their clients and raise awareness for mental well being and suicide prevention.
