Suited & Booted Charity

Suited & Booted is one of the Bowyers' favourite small charities. It gets City workers to donate business attire - suits, shirts, ties, shoes - and uses them to kit out job-seekers to look the part for job interviews. It adds some interview coaching too, and each year sends 1,500 of them out on new career paths with heads held high, and a high rate of success.

To cover its premises and operating costs it depends on charitable donations from City businesses and livery companies (including ours), and also raises money from a series of innovative fund-raising evenings organised by their charismatic principal, Dr Maria Lenn.

The most recent, on 28 November, was a wine-tasting evening at the London Bridge offices of Norton Rose Fulbright, conducted by no less an expert than Dr Gerald Sacks, the Chancellor for London and Southern GB of La Jurade de St Emilion, at which a Bowyers' table of 6 was delighted to be present to support this excellent cause.
