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, Station Road, Bradley Junction, decided to donate the suits to CAFOD following a stock clearout. His aim was to help those abroad and those here who need a good quality suit.

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.”

Speaking about the impact he wants the sale to have, Chris said: “We are delighted to give these suits to such a good cause as CAFOD. Antich hope 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 £100-110, but will be available to purchase for a fraction of the original cost.

The suit sale was held in Crosby, Liverpool and raised £400 however the remaining suits will be sold through the volunteer run CAFOD shop in Liverpool.

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

Ben Oldham, CAFOD manager for the Diocese of Leeds, 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.”
