Timpson offers free dry cleaning for the unemployed
We all need a helping hand from time to time and in offering unemployed people free cleaning of outfits for an interview, the dry cleaning business Timpson sets an example that other businesses should follow.
A sign, which is now displayed in all of their 1,395 stores that offer dry cleaning, reads:
“If you are unemployed and need an outfit cleaned for an interview we will clean it for free”.
Beneath it is a photograph of the company’s CEO, James Timpson OBE, with the caption:
“When times are tough, we will help you look your best”.
This generous and thoughtful offer comes from a business that has been run by the same family for five generations and one that focuses its charitable efforts on helping the disadvantaged. More companies should follow their lead.
