Introducing a Charles Tyrwhitt collection dedicated to raising funds to help young people: for every piece sold, £5 will be donated to the Prince’s Trust.
Alongside our mission of offering the best of British menswear to the world, at Charles Tyrwhitt we’re committed to helping disadvantaged young people reach their full potential in partnership with the Prince’s Trust.
Our engagement with the Trust founded in 1976 by HRH the Prince of Wales spans our whole business.
From baking to biking, fundraising for the Prince’s Trust keeps Tyrwhitteers busy. Our founder Nick Wheeler’s 874-mile bike ride from Land’s End to John o’ Groats (a traversal the length of the great island of Britain) raised over£100k, while our team’s competitive cake sales, raffles, and pub quizzes have become an intrinsic part of the company’s social agenda. This September, 40 of us will be tackling the National Three Peaks Challenge; a gruelling trek which we hope will deliver a further £25,000 for the Trust.
Tyrwhiteers also donate their time, skills, and experience to help young people get ahead. We regularly volunteer to run sessions in CV writing, interview training, and career mentoring, while Nick Wheeler himself coaches young entrepreneurs.
We also host WOW (World of Work) tours at Charles Tyrwhitt’s London office and Milton Keynes Distribution and Contact Centre. These workshops specifically support young people at risk of failing their GCSEs. Our goal is to inspire and share practical skills to boost their confidence and self-belief.
For our beloved customers, however, the most exciting part of this partnership means we can support the Trust by doing what we do best: flexing our knack for style. This season we’re dedicating to the Prince’s Trust a specially designed range of shirts and ties suitably inspired by the timeless elegance of the Prince of Wales check – a motif we’re utterly fond of. For every piece of this collection sold in the UK between and , £5 will be donated to the cause. Our target? Another £50,000 devoted to enriching young lives.
