Huddersfield firm Antich and Sons supply 100 suits to charity

A Bradley-based textile firm donated 100 suits for overseas aid charity CAFOD to sell to raise funds for its work

They should be well-suited with this!

A Huddersfield businessman has donated 100 quality tailored suits to charity to help raise money for some of the world’s poorest people.

Chris Antich, owner of Antich and Sons (Huddersfield) Ltd, based at Station Road, Bradley Junction, decided to donate the suits to CAFOD to sell following a stock clearout. The aim is to help CAFOD’s charity work overseas – and those who need a good quality suit for a job interview or special occasion.

Chris said: “Rather than have somebody take them, we thought we’d let CAFOD have them. It was a no brainer. I feel fortunate that we’re in a position to give and we get great pleasure out of being able to do so.”

He said: “We are delighted to give these suits to such a good cause as CAFOD. Antich hopes that all the recipients will prosper and have a better chance at succeeding. I hope that it helps people who need a good suit for an occasion or an interview.”

All of the suits and separates are brand new and come in a variety of styles for men and women. They usually retail at £100 to £110, but have been sold for a fraction of the original cost.

The suit sale took place at the weekend at St Helen’s Parish Centre, Alexandra Road, Crosby, Liverpool. CAFOD has a volunteer-run shop in Liverpool and the sale was promoted through them.

Proceeds from the sale will go towards Catholic aid agency CAFOD’s work to help transform the lives of those living in poverty around the world.

Ben Oldham, CAFOD manager for Huddersfield, said: “We’d like to thank Chris for his support and generosity. The money raised from the sale will make a real difference to those living in poverty.”

Antich and Sons (Huddersfield) Ltd, which was established 1989, is the largest worsted manufacturer in the UK. The commission weaver, warper and mender Antich and Sons has supplied fabrics and garments to clients including British Airways, Debenhams and Marks and Spencer.

CAFOD is the official Catholic aid and development agency of England and Wales. CAFOD works with partners across the world with people of all faiths and none.
