Suits You Sir! Mind teams up with Austin Reed for Suit Swap
Posted Wednesday 1 August 2012
We are really pleased to announce that we have partnered with Austin Reed for a clothes swap with a difference. In September, donate any unwanted suit to a Mind charity shop and get a £50 voucher to spend on an Austin Reed suit. It’s the perfect opportunity to have a clearout, support Mind and treat yourself to something new into the bargain.
Towards the end of September, we will also be giving you the chance to bid on a suit owned by one of Britain’s best-dressed celebrities as part of our online celebrity suit auction. The latest stylish donation has come from musician, actor and director Plan B, who said:
Mental health is a really important issue and the work that Mind does to help people with mental health problems is amazing. I'm really pleased to be supporting Mind by donating this suit and I hope that people bid generously for it and raise as much money as possible.
Nick Hollingworth, CEO Austin Reed says:
This is a terrific initiative that Austin Reed is proud to be part of. Mind is an extremely significant and worthwhile charity and we are thrilled that we can work with Mind to raise awareness and funds for this essential cause.
Andrew Vale, Managing Director of Mind Retail says:
We are delighted to be working with Austin Reed on the Suit Swap. Teaming up with such a recognisable brand will really help boost our fundraising efforts and raise awareness of the work that we do. Our shops raise vital funds to help us provide services for people affected by mental health problems and we know that, at the moment, people need Mind more than ever. The money raised by the Suit Swap will help make sure we can keep providing advice, information and support to anyone who needs it.
