Barber kicks off Christmas with fund-raising shop decorations

    Published: 2 December, 2016

    IT’S beginning to look a lot like Christmas in Camden Town thanks to a barber’s shop which once again has pulled out all the stops to get people in the festive mood.

    Ossie’s, in Parkway, has not just one but two Father Christmases toasting the season in the decorated window. 

    The long-standing hairdressers, whose customers include playwright Alan Bennett and newscaster Sir Trevor McDonald, is collecting money for a Missing Persons helpline from passers-by and customers admiring the decorations. 

    Barber Ossie Mehmet said: “People always stop and look at the display and we thought we could have a collection to try and help people who are missing somebody they love at Christmas.”
