Reading Time: < 1 minute

A local charity is seeking unwanted smart workwear from Jewellery Quarter residents and businesses.

During Monday 2nd October – Friday 6th October, Suited for Success is joining together with The Big Peg, the JQBID, the Jewellery Quarter West Midlands Police Team and TimeBank to run a suit donation drive.

Individuals are being encouraged to donate their gently worn suits and smart workwear to help unemployed men and women into employment. The collection point will be The Big Peg reception between 9am – 5pm. The TimeBank volunteer team will also be out and about on Friday 6th October visiting businesses and collecting donations from people not able to get to The Big Peg collection point.

Suited for Success provides free high-quality interview clothes, styling and interview presentation skills for unemployed people before any potential job interviews. The Jewellery Quarter sits within the Ladywood constituency, an area recognised for its high unemployment and deprivation. This is an opportunity for everyone to make a real difference to someone’s future.
