Drapers Indies raise £2,300 for FTCT

Friday, September 16th, 2016 | Posted in Blog, Events

On Wednesday, the FTCT team were back at the Draper Independents Awards, as chosen charity for this glittering industry event. Spurred on by our wonderful team of FRA London volunteers, guests donated over £2,300 to take part in our special prize draw.

Evelyn Finlay from Douglas and Grahame was the lucky prize winner of our film club experience, generously donated by Firmdale Hotels. One lucky guest on every table also walked away with a bottle of bubbly in our champagne draw, generously sponsored by Marks and Spencer. There was also one winner on every table

The highlight of the event though had to be our first public screening of Archie’s FTCT story. Archie’s Dad Steve works for the fashion brand Lands’ End and heard about FTCT through his HR manager Wendy. He successfully received £2,000 towards equipment for Archie and bedroom furniture for Archie’s siblings, Pheobie, Grace and Teddy. Here, Leanne and Steve share their FTCT story.

Huge thank you to everyone who generously made a donation at the event. Your donations enable us to continue helping families like Leanne, Steve and Archie.
