Don't have time to donate right now?

Story

I'm Sonny, the owner of Grant & Co Tailoring. Some years back I was down on my luck and needed a suit for a job interview, I barely had the money to buy food let alone a suit. Then an organisation called SuitedBooted gave me a life-line. Within 24 hours I was in their studio and was given a suit, 4 shirts, a pair of shoes and a bag full of ties. I got the job and then some...! Fast forward a few years and in a bizarre twist of fate, I'm now making suits myself!

I want to be able to provide the service I was given. Be compassionate and non-judgmental, and in the only way I know how to, give people a helping hand to achieve their own success.

I'll do this by using your generously donated money to produce suits in standard sizes at cost price - that is to say, I won't charge for my work only the cost of the materials. I will then give these suits to local charities and/or distribute them myself.

I'm also looking for others to jump on this with me! If you can't afford to donate cash but you have good quality, second hand suits/shirts (for men and women!) please do get in touch, these can be used as well!!

    Donations were steady this week, but we've slowed down since Thursday 🙁 I'm seeking alternative funding options via organisations with focuses on Charity but I'm convinced the best way to achieve my goal of helping men from low/no income backgrounds into work is with your support. This is an open invitation to all of you, come with me for the day, see the work I am doing alongside the Suited & Booted Charity, come and witness first hand how your help genuinely changes lives. This is a serious offer, I have availability all week!

    Good evening everyone, I spent some time with the Suited & Booted Centre today volunteering as a stylist to get some lovely chaps who have interviews coming up soon into a quality suit. It was a remarkably humbling experience, but seeing these men try on their suits and instantly gain an inch in height, standing proud and confident, absolutely made my day. One gentleman left me a hand-written thank you note, and I must admit, it brought me to tears. Please! Share, Donate, or give good quality second-hand suits!
