Celebrations at the Contour Ball

Friday, May 23rd, 2014 | Posted in Blog, Fundraising

Last night, the FTCT team were out Board of Trusteesin force at the glitzy Contour Fashion Ball. As joint charity for the event, with our friends the Retail Trust, FTCT received overwhelming support from the glitterati of the lingerie industry.

It was a momentous occasion for other reasons, marking the first official engagement for many of FTCT’s new Trustees, including Jas Virdee, Vanessa Green and Meg Lustman (pictured far left, with Anna and Trustees Amit, David and Mike).

With a tombola, diamond draw, photobooth and silent auction guests had plenty of opportunity to donate and support both charities, raising more than £48,000 on the night. These much needed funds will go towards supporting our education and wellbeing grants for vulnerable children in the year ahead.

Our thanks go to the Contour Committee, for honouring FTCT as joint charity for this fabulous event. A special mention also to committee chairwoman Sharon Webb, who will be stepping down after 5 years at the helm, with more than £250,000 raised under her leadership. Sharon we are so grateful for all you have done to support FTCT over the years. You will be greatly missed.
