Law firm Shakespeare Martineau based at 1 Colmore Row in Birmingham City Centre took part in our recent #Dontwearitshareit suit drive and collected over 100 items of male and female quality smart clothing items including 19 suits, 23 jackets, 20 dresses and more...
Organised by trainee solicitor Alex Ryan and solicitor Ben Humphries the office embraced the spirit of the campaign by dressing down for the day and donating a suit or items of smart professional clothing to Suited for Success.
A UK wide response
More of their offices across the UK heard about the drive and asked to take part too. Over 30 boxes of collected suits were sent to the Birmingham office by courier and picked up by Suited for Success managing director, Patricia White on Thursday 5th May.
Alex and Ben were blown away by the response: "We put the call out to our other offices to get involved but we never expected this fantastic response, the boxes just kept coming. We're really pleased we managed to raise as much as we did and also that other firms across the UK made such a big effort too!"
All the suits and clothing items will go a long way in helping to ensure people make a crucial positive in a job interview
