Jagged Edge Barbers support The SMART Prebend Centre!

On Sunday 1st October Jagged Edge Barbers will be offering Free men’s hair cuts in exchange for clothes as part of their ‘SOS – Cuts 4 Clothes campaign.’

To qualify for a free haircut simply contact Jagged Edge through one of their social media sites (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram) and make an appointment for Sunday 1st October. In return for a free cut you need to donate new or very good condition men’s T-shirts, sweatshirts and or jeans. These clothes will be donated to The SMART Prebend Centre in Bedford.

“We started the Jagged Edge SOS to help encourage our social media followers to get involved. The idea of the Cuts for Clothes is a great one for Bedford and it means our males clients can donate some of their quality gear to this worthy cause,” said Zak Resinato, Director of Jagged Edge.

SMART’s Communication Manager James Whitcomb commented “It’s important for projects like The SMART Prebend Centre to have support from the local community. We are extremely grateful to Jagged Edge Barbers and to local businesses and residents who support us in Bedford.”
