 New stretch target

The more we can raise, the more men Suited & Booted can help this year and beyond. 


Our Challenge

This October, we will be trekking The Great Wall of China to raise vital funds. Following parts of the historic Silk Road, we will be trekking parts of the Great Wall over five consecutive days, for around 4-7 hours a day, up and down thousands of uneven steps on tricky terrain.

The Charity

Suited & Booted is an incredible London-based charity that assists men from disadvantaged backgrounds by providing them with suitable interview clothing, interview training and mentoring. We have both had the privilege of supporting and volunteering at this charity and have seen firsthand the transformation that a suit and tie can bring about. It's not just about the clothes; it gives the wearer self-esteem, confidence, and belief. 

This is a small charity that operates without government funding, relying solely on grants, donations, and the dedication of volunteers. Find out more about the charity here https://suitedbootedcentre.org.uk/

The Merch!

Our goal is to raise £5,000 for Suited & Booted. We have come up with some new fun ways to fundraise and show your support including these fabulous branded baseball hats and tote bags!
