Back to School for FTCT!

Thursday, October 18th, 2012 | Posted in Blog

This week, FTCT was proud to be chosen charity at The Schoolwear Show 2012, the biggest event in the schoolwear industry’s calendar. Hosted at Associated Independent Stores, in Solihull, it was the second time FTCT has been invited to be part of the show, which is organised by the Schoolwear Association.

Jill, FTCT Marketing Manager, (pictured), was at the show, giving out information about FTCT and the ways in which our grants could help to support their children or the children of their employees.

The show was so a great success for FTCT, giving us the opportunity to meet over 1000 visitors, exhibitors and press from the Schoolwear industry, from companies including Trutex, David Luke, William Turner & Son Schoolwear, Sturdy KidsCarta Sports and Childrenswear Buyer Magazine.

Everyone we met at the show was given an FTCT button badge, kindly made by our team of dedicated FTCT parent and carer volunteers. Plus, everyone who visited the FTCT stand left armed with one of our FTCT posters, to be put up in staffrooms and shops across the UK, reaching as far wide as Inverness and Northern Ireland! Which is just fantastic!

Thank you to everyone who took the time to visit the FTCT stand and to everyone who is now following us on Twitter, talking about us on Facebook and proudly wearing their FTCT button badge, after meeting us at the show! For full photo highlights from the show, click here!

We would also like to say a huge thank you to Linda Painter, Andy Smith, Joyce Daly, David Burgess and everyone involved with the Schoolwear Association and Force 12 for inviting FTCT to be their charity partner for the second consecutive show.

We really look forward to being part of the show next year, taking place on Sunday 13th October-Tuesday 15th October 2013!

If you or someone you know needs support for their child, please get in touch or visit the grants page on our website, to find out more about the support we can give, to children, whose parents or carers work in any aspect of the UK fashion and textile industry.
