Our Supporters

As the official charity for the Hair and Beauty industry, HABB is managed and run by two committees of volunteers: the management committee and the fundraising committee. The committees are headed-up by President David Drew and Vice President Sam Grocutt.

The Management Committee

This committee of representatives from industry bodies, and former hairdressing professionals meet monthly to discuss recent applications and oversee the smooth running of the charity.

HABB President - David Drew

David Drew will take on a second term as HABB President in 2016. He brings 41 years’ hair industry experience to the role. His responsibility is to drive HABB forward and chair the charity’s fundraising and management committee meetings ensuring that HABB, Helping Hairdressers In Need remains financially sound and stable, that everyone sitting on these two committees abides by the charity rules and that all of our fundraising activities are planned to fit the cause’s aims and ambitions. David says: “I’m a great believer that in life, you get back what you give out, so I feel it’s very important about putting something back into my industry which I’m passionate about.”

The Fundraising Committee

Made up of current and former hairdressers, representatives from HABB’s corporate sponsors and professionals who work in the hairdressing industry in other ways, such as marketing and PR. The fundraising committee meets every other month to generate ideas and plan the events in the HABB calendar.

Vice President - Sam Grocutt

Sam Grocutt - Essence PRVice President Sam Grocutt has been on the HABB committee for almost 8 years and is very passionate about giving back to an industry that is always so giving to others. As well as playing a pivotal role at committee meetings, Sam works to spread the word about the excellent work HABB undertakes and to generate the much-needed financial support the charity urgently needs to ensure it can continue.  “We need as many people as possible to hear all the great things HABB do and show support no matter how small it may seem,” explains Sam.

The two committees are supported by a management team of Teresa Frise, Beverlie Isaacs and Bernie Rhoades who oversee applications and ensure that the charity runs efficiently on a day-to-day basis. For more information about the charity or to discuss ways that you can get involved, please contact [email protected].
