John Timpson runs his business with the highest moral integrity. This should go hot. Some of our big companies could learn something about social responsibility from Timpsons.

Great idea. Some people just need a little bit of help

Great to see some humanity in our community :

Whilst it's not a deal, this deserves the publicity.
Both for the free dry clean service, as well as for Timpson doing the right thing.

Great deal from a nice company.

Last year I was best man at my brothers wedding at a church near the high street of my local town. Just as we were getting a few pre wedding photos I noticed the sole had come off of my shoe. In a mad panic I hobbled along to the local Timpson and the guy serving fixed me in 5 mins.

I then realised my wife was carrying my wallet so I had no money. I said to the guy I’d nip away and be back in 5 mins with the cash. He said don’t bother. Just leave a good review on their website.

It was the first thing I did the next day.

I thought it was such a nice gesture as the guy could see I was a bit stressed.

So, you're on your way to your interview, presumably wearing your suit. Erm.

Do you know how they advertise this app on Google play?

There are no 2 ways about it.

Your local branch of Currys is the best-bet. They have even models wearing them to demonstrate how much they need a good-clean.
Just tell one of the models that you're interested in buying a 65" telly. He will give you an extended suit-demo and perhaps you'll also get a visit from a somewhat older model wearing a much grubbier suit.
The stock varies from branch to branch but there's always a great selection.

Some of our posters should learn about real life - I would have added heat if they had required proof of an interview, but can imagine this offer will appeal to those who already get enough help with addictions, whilst some hard working people are having to survive on less money than equivalent workshy scroungers...try asking some self employed small business people how many hours they work and how much actual profit they get in a year - I know of several who are struggling, yet are not entitled to extra help, whilst local scroungers are propping up pub doorways every day, smoking, using a food bank etc, and boast loudly in the street about how much they have scammed from the government whilst advising 'mates' to do the same.
Great idea this, but only if restricted to those in need who can prove it, otherwise open it up to everyone with the nerve to ask.

I think you're working too hard, Theresa.

Maybe they ring the potential employer? Not sure how else they would tell?
