The All4Youth fun day at Biggy’s Barbers, Ashfield Road
A youth fun day at a Rochdale barber’s salon has raised £900 towards water wells for those less fortunate in Pakistan.
Hundreds attended the All4Youth fun day at Biggy’s Barbers on Ashfield Road where a barbecue was enjoyed as money was raised for the cause.
This is the second such event by the youth organisation which has raised money for wells in Pakistan.
Based in Rochdale, All4Youth aims to take youths off the streets and into a place of safety. The organisation also provides support and guidance to those suffering from mental health issues, drug/alcohol addiction, bullying, depression, anxiety, and more.
Despite being called ‘All4Youth’, the organisation also raises awareness of what older generations should look out for and how they can support the younger generation.
Founder Hassan Ali said: “Our aim is to hold this event every year to make it bigger and better, as it gives a chance for the youth to come out and make a difference.”
Waqas Sultan, owner of Biggy’s, said: “Even if it’s only once a year, we want all businesses to come on board and sacrifice one day for charity. The response we get from the local community is amazing and I hope to do this every year and work with All4Youth with more projects in the future.”
