Following the success of our Christmas Hampers for The Connection, we decided to support people getting back into work for our Spring campaign. We have chosen three charities who provide mentoring, training and support for people looking for work: Dress for Success (www.dressforsuccess.org), helping women returning to the workplace; Waltz (www.waltzprogrammes.org), helping young people find their first job; and The Connection (www.connection-at-stmartins.org.uk), mainly helping men.
