Penny Lane Barbershop in Liverpool Raises Money for Charity

The barbershop referenced in the Beatles' "Penny Lane" is collecting funds for a worthy cause this season, the Liverpool Echo reports.

Adele Allan owns the Tony Slavin 'Penny Lane' Barbers, and has worked at the salon for 40 years. Every year Beatles fans flock from all over the world to visit the shop made famous by the Fab Four.

When tourists come through the door, eager to take souvenir photographs, Adele asks for a donation to a local cause in exchange. Regular customer Frank Donovan decided to collaborate with Adele after learning about her support for local charities.

Mr Donovan, founding trustee of The Bloom Appeal - a charity supporting blood cancer patients on Merseyside, told the ECHO: "Beatles fans come from all over the country to her shop, all over the world even - we know because there's dollars and euros in the donation buckets.

"I've been getting my hair cut there for years and when I asked Adele if she would put a donation box in for the Bloom Appeal she said yes straight away. The money raised will help so much, it helps support people who can't work because of blood cancer, and helps fund research."
