Elevation Holds Clothing Donation Drive on Behalf of The Suit Works Charity

As part of our recently announced CSR policy, we 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.

Throughout August and into September, our team reached out to candidates, clients, friends and family to ask for smart clothing and accessory donations.

We are proud to announce that we have 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.

For many, including our own employees, working from home has meant being left with a wardrobe of unused clothing, shoes and bags, that have now been donated towards a selfless cause.

The Suit Works are an independent charity based in Sheffield that provide job seekers with styling session and interview appropriate clothing, a capsule wardrobe for the first month of their employment and interview preparation with informal tips, skills, and training, covering aspects such as body language, grooming and dealing with nerves.

They currently help around 10 people per week but have the capacity to help 16 people per week.

Faye Mellors, Project Lead at The Suit Works said: “Since Covid, we have really struggled for donations, so it came at the perfect time when Elevation reached out to offer to hold a clothing drive for our charity. We are unbelievably grateful to receive so many quality items that will last the test of time. I can guarantee that every single piece will be used to help our clients dress the part.

Working with Elevation has been a dream and great fun, we have had constant communication throughout, and we have really appreciated the brand awareness on Facebook, Instagram and LinkedIn. We look forward to continuing our relationship and working with them in future volunteering projects.”

Sarah-Lee Neesam, Business Services Director says: “We are delighted that we could help The Suit Works in this donation drive. We received an incredible amount of donations, and we would like to thank everyone who has donated, whether it has been big or small, it has made a huge impact to the charity. And I would personally like to thank the team at Close Brothers in particular, who have donated an astonishing amount.”

Our new CSR policy has one aim in mind, to support local charities and offer employees the chance to give back to our community, in what has been a challenging time for many during the pandemic.
