Suit the City head office and franchise owners have been raising money for a number of charities.
The Suit the City Oxfordshire franchise supports Dogs for the Disabled, a charity whose trained dogs make an enormous difference to the lives of the disabled and children with autism. For each sale made from an in-company event, 5 per cent will be donated to the charity.
Suit the City Bath & Bristol supports The Rainbow Centre by donating items to its raffles and selling enamel ‘rainbow’ cufflinks to raise money for the charity. The Rainbow Centre provides free support to children and their families affected by life threatening illness and bereavement.
The head office team support a number of charities including Mencap, which works in partnership with people with a learning disability and all its services support people to live life as they choose. Suit the City head office has donated two made-to-measure Holland & Sherry suits to be included in the charity’s auctions both receiving bids of around £1,000.
Another charity supported by Suit the City head office is Racing Welfare, which supports individuals who have been injured while working in the thoroughbred horseracing and breeding industry and their dependents. Suit the City has donated a tweed jacket to one of its auctions raising over £700. In addition, it dressed Paul ‘Barney’ Bamford for a visit to Buckingham Place as a guest of HM The Queen earlier this year. Bamford is a paralysed former stable lad from Sheffield who completed a 113-mile trek in his wheelchair hand cycle to raise funds.
