For Ged King, charity begins with the homeless.
After opening his own barber shop, King found success specialising in the ‘skull fade’, a haircut that has become popular in recent years.
Not content with just doing the job he loves, the hairdresser decided to use his talent to help the homeless so he set up the ‘Skullfades Foundation.’
Two years later, the organisation not only cuts hair but also receives donations to provide new sleeping bags and hot food to those who need it in the winter months.
The foundation has become recognisable amongst the homeless community in Manchester, travelling around in their black skull-faced transit van.
Final year TV Production student Sapir Tal talks to Ged and witnesses the fantastic work carried out by the Skullfades Foundation.
