A project named 'The Homeless Barbers' has won £500 to set up a pop-up street shop in Glasgow's East End.

Steven Thomson set up the shop to offer free haircuts to homeless and vulnerable people after he experienced homelessness himself and wanted to help others.

The money was awarded by The Glasgow Soup - a crowdfunding initiative enabling local people to pitch ideas that benefit the city's East End.
