In today's era of corporate greed and tax avoidance it's refreshing to see a company giving something back to those in need.

I for one hope I have done my last job interview and certainly hope I don't ever become unemployed, however if I was unlucky enough and this helped me find a new job I'd be grateful.

Heat added.

Come on people enough with the insults. Save it for the football over the weekend. its a brilliant deal and should be deemed good deed of the year for a great idea.

Get stuffed. Fish face.

Yikes, not really a nice gesture just pretty cheap/clever pr and probably a little nudge nudge/nod/wink to someone further up the food chain for future favour to be collected as and when. aargh, there be kickbacks over yonder.
If it was truly such a wonderful generous act they should surely take a person at their word when inquiring if they were unemployed and had an interview rather than requiring any proof at all.
Assuming that the person in need turning up for a free suit cleaning is unworthy of trust straight off the bat is the bigger issue. Another day in paradise.

My god am I glad I don't have to live in your head

You cannot be THAT naive!
It is part of MANY peoples make up to abuse any system...... whether they are multi-millionaires avoiding paying taxes, or pregnant Nigerians coming to Britain to make free use of our NHS, or MPs abusing the expenses scheme.
They will also 'justify' their abuse - for example, someone who is disabled, not got an interview for a job, but has a family wedding ........ why should they not get their suit cleaned for free?
What about someone on NMW who has an interview for promotion - why should they not get their suit cleaned for free?
Someone who is charged with a crime.... why should they not get their suit cleaned for free - to give them a better chance in court...?

For naive substitute enlightened. good luck with the interview though.

FREE outfit cleaning for your interview (if unemployed) at Timpson

Sweetest offer I've seen in a while. Apparently this is national. Note it says "outfit" not just "suit" so it wouldn't be limited to suits. Could have your dress cleaned up if you're a woman. Or indee…

There is more information about this offer on their website:

A very good thing being done by Timpson's. Should teach the likes of Tesco's a lesson or 2.

Hopefully those that get a job after some Timpson's cleaning will return to them for some paid services.

? ah, took a little digging but worked it out he's "friends" with cameron. Its a round about way of helping people off welfare. So you can look spiffy when you go for your low paid agency job in care. Yep check the government jobsite, about 80% of the jobs on there are through agencies now. Frightening. There is always a reason for freebies some are just less obvious than others.
I would suggest you do a bit more digging if you think agency care workers are low paid - they're invariably paid more than full-time staff care workers!
I am a care worker and can 100% guarantee that agency are paid far more than non-agency, I will get nearly double pay working agency shifts than for the NHS
That was precisely my point.
I know, I was just backing you up

Not sure but I don't think there's an end date for it. Just an ongoing thing.

Great stuff this!
What Is? Is this STILL going?
Great stuff this!
The great thing about this offer is that the company is showing social responsibility. In this system where the more you have the less you need to pay, all big companies should be the same and if they're not they should be forced to be.

We live in a world where they put spikes on the floor outside selfridges to keep the homeless from bothering them and where supermarkets pour bleach on wasted food to stop starving people rooting through their bins. This is only a minor thing but it's a little antidote to things like that.

enough perks for ppl on benefits
Agree, but doesnt this help get people off benefits?
Also enough BIGits, without agreeing?
Sorry if that came across wrong. Lost my job a few years ago and had to live on benefits for a while, I know how hard it is. I meant that there should be more things like this to help people get jobs, rather than the current system which can be easily abused and doesn't do enough to help people who actually try. I've worked with people who quit their jobs because they earned more on benefits, that doesn't solve anything.
Hi Dan,
I`m a Support Worker for people with learning disabilities, on a Zero-Hour contract for an extremely well known charity (who still take advantage). I `ve lived on benefits, and sometimes it is better than work?!!
But NOT because the unemployed are Lazy? But because, at least you know you will be able to pay your rent!!

Something Cameron + Osborne have NEVER had to worry about?
Dew to their Benefit System? "INHERITANCE BENEFITS" - From Birth!!

I`ve NEVER met an unemployed person who is lazy? But I`ve met plenty of "BIGOTS" using this "MYTH" to "PRETEND" their BETTER people than unemployed people? The OPPOSITE is usually the reason!
Cameron + Osborne being JUST "2 Drips in the Ocean"!!

But, all the best to you, and thanks for your clarification. Mike

Just had a Ford key cut at Timpsons in Metro Centre Gateshead. £25 for a chipped car key is a bargain.

Just got a Jaguar X-Type key £25 at Timpsons MetroCentre!! Stealer (and even independents) wanted £150 minimum so great deal!!!
A Ford key then ;)
Suzuki your right any key cutter can copy the key but even for a non-remote one I've never came across anyone who'd copy and programme a key for under £50.
they cloned your jag key, any key cutter does that for pretty similar money, that wouldn't have included the remote functions same with your Fords. the independent that quoted £150 was quoting for a remote, key blade & programming into the car, not just knocking one up on a bench. there is a difference between a £25 key and a £150 one! you pays your money you takes your chances!

Some Timpson stores are doing half price chipped car key cutting for a limited period. e.g. For a Citroen Saxo now just £20 instead of £40. I asked how long the offer was on, and was told at

Qoute -
though timpson are good (if there is no other option to you) I had a ford key cut (£35) there last week and thought I had saved money, went around the corner and went into a cobbler shop who cut keys and wondered how much they charge they were ven cheaper quoting me £29-99 and this was NORMAL price offering a deal if I bought 2?
This is obviously a rip off item, the dealers and there prices.. timpson and there's 'kidding' everyone "Half Price!" ask them how much for a 'Normal' house key a yale for instance? £6-00 around here!
Simple answer's are - SHOP around!
Qoute_
"Yes, but you are buying into the brand too. I own a BMW but a Kia would have done the same job and would be cheaper.

Also, do bear in mind that Timpsons are more than likely to 'sort the key out' if it accidently bends or breaks or if it doesn't function as it should (which can happen with Immobiliser keys). Local Jonny boy won't. I don't know about their recent keys but their older keys had Timpsons engraved on them and once it got a bit bent out of shape. Took it to the local Timpsons who cut a new one for free no questions asked"
-----------------------------------------------------
I tried this (after reading this) my key with "timpson" stamped on, it was bent (slightly) but not easy to put into lock, the timpson shop I called on stated - "as it was worn" would not recut for free"
so they seem just the same as "Johnny-Boy"

vw keys can be done by a proper auto locksmith even the precoded ones i got mine 2010 golf key done the dealers tolld me 5 days as they had to order it from germany but i went to cartronics uk in bradford they did me one with a fob exact same key as mine within the hour! dont know if any of you are near bradford if so you can visit them http://www.cartronicsuk.com
just in case anyone's interested, just had my 59 plate fiat grande punto car key copied, it opens and starts the car, thanks op for listing :)
So can an 07 Golf be done over the counter at certain branches or is it dealer only seems to be a mixed opinion on VAG, I have the original key just want a spare in case the worse happens.
[email protected] being cheap.

Another user is correct - try asking the price of a Yale type key and compare to what most of the independents are charging. The prices seem to differ depending who's operating the Timpson shop at the time too!!!

The Timpson near me charges a fiver for a Yale key or two for seven fifty, my local cobbler charges £3.25 per key and it's still cheaper by a quid to get two cut without any 'Special Deals'

People are always moaning about the death of town centres, villages and small businesses. Stop bloody moaning and do your bit to support your small independent and your community!

You get much better service imo as the independent will be keen to keep your custom as he doesn't get paid a wage regardless.

In order of expense for car keys:
1) Main dealer £££££
2)Timpson ££££
3)Independent ££
