    Yeah well thats what i am thinking. Dont wanna go smart dress because i wont be doing that if they decide they want me to help out.

    Yeah i know i have been on there website etc, its sorting out fundraiser events and organising them etc. :thumbsup: and that is what there called i had it right, wasnt sure if it was chester or chesire.

    Just do it all for nothing :whistling:

    dont forget this will look good on his CV especially if he is planning on a career in this field.
    Do you need a CRB check?? that is something you should ask when you go because it costs about £55
    good luck with it
    i would go with whatever you feel most comfortable with as its no good dressing smart and sitting there fidgeting cause you dont like tight collars lol

    Cheers yeah thats what i am doing it for CV and uni application. I will ask that tomorrow. He only wants to meet in a cafe type place so surely its informal chat casual(ish) dress.

    Don't ask for your wages:thumbsup:

    Good luck.
