The Suit Works – Clothing Drive

Elevation teamed up with The Suit Works charity in South Yorkshire, to hold a workwear clothing drive at our Rotherham office on Tuesday 7th September 2021.

We collected over 300 items of male and female donations, including suits, coats, shirts, trousers, dresses, skirts, ties, shoes, and handbags.

The clothing drive was an opportunity to collect as many workwear items as possible to support The Suit Works in their aim to help unemployed people of all ages, who want to work, but do not have the funds or means to purchase appropriate clothing for interviews.

Volunteering at St Luke’s Crookes Donation Centre

In support of our employee volunteering program, three of our team members spent the afternoon of Tuesday 7th September 2021, sorting through the masses of donated items at St Luke’s Crooke’s centre.

They learned about the great work the charity does and got an insight into what goes on behind the scenes to support those being treated for end-of-life care, and for their loved ones.

Roundabout – Sleep Out

In November, Elevation was headline sponsors of the sleepout event in conjunction with Roundabout. A great youth charity that provides shelter, support and life skills to young people aged 16-24 who are homeless or at risk of homelessness. We braved the cold night by swapping warm beds for a sleeping bag and a hard floor. It gave our team a small insight into the challenges faced by vulnerable young people at risk of homelessness.

Our team raised £2,170 for Roundabout
