The Suit Works

Some of you may remember that at the Annual Meeting in 2016, the members voted to give £200 to this start up charity. Since then, Vanda Kewley has helped to kit out almost 200 unemployed men, many of whom have never worn a suit before. Dressing the part makes a big impact on the men, literally cloaking them in confidence. Now some 55% of the clients get a job within six weeks. It’s good to get feedback on the ‘investment’ our church donations make. £200 each will go this year to Age UK (money to be spent locally), Transport 17, Sheffield Samaritans, Cavendish Cancer Care, the Leprosy Mission and Water Aid. The main charity will be SHARE (Sheffield Health Action Resources for Ethiopia).
