Around two weeks have passed since the rioters tarnished the UK with unsubstantiated, wanton destruction. While lots of damage has been done emotionally, physically and in most cases, financially, there have been many touching stories emerge from the fallout. One such story is that of Aaron Biber who is 89 and has lived in the Tottenham area for 41 years. His Barber Shop fell victim to to the rioters, who inflicted serious damage to the premises.

“I will probably have to close because I haven’t got insurance and I can’t afford the repairs,” – Aaron Biber

Touched by this story, the interns at BBH Barn got together and used the combined power of video and the internet to spread awareness of Aaron’s situation and keep him in business.

Within 7 days, the generous donations from those who had heard Aaron’s story saw a staggering £35,000 raised and Aaron back doing what he loves best, cutting hair.

The guys at BBH Barn went one step further and secured a special customer to signal the lifelong Tottenham fan’s return to the chair – Peter Crouch.


It’s reassuring to see that in times of adversity, the gentleman still shines through.
