#Greggs4Good Photo Competition Winner Announced!


The winner of 2020’s first #Greggs4Good photo competition is… Haircuts4Homeless, who have won an extra £250 funding for their project. Congratulations to the whole team, everyone at Greggs Foundation loved your image!

The project was established in November 2014 in Romford, it now has 53 sites across the UK with over 600 volunteers and over 40,000 cuts delivered so far.

“Homeless people have many challenges to face, one of them often being a low self-esteem. A haircut can have a great effect on someone, giving them a real boost. It may be “just a haircut”, but it’s the kindness shown that makes a homeless person know that people really care”.

The Greggs Foundation team really enjoyed judging the competition and would like to thank all projects who took the time to enter. It was one of our toughest photo competitions to judge so far, with many brilliant entries. A special mention goes to Lagan’s Foundation and Cae Tân CSA Sustainable Schools Programme for their wonderful photos and blogs.

Don’t worry if you weren’t successful this time, there will be more photo competitions in 2020 giving you the chance to win a bit of extra funding for your project. Keep updating your Semble project pages and watch out for the next photo competition… coming soon!
