FTCT’s Outreach Campaign gains support at the Drapers Awards

Friday, November 18th, 2011 | Posted in Blog

Dave Shepherd, Topman MD, FTCT, Trustee Children's Charity.Wednesday night saw nearly 1,000 guests from across the fashion industry rub shoulders at the annual Drapers awards.

You may remember at last year’s awards we announced our re-brand, unveiling our new logo and website.

This year, we were honoured to be invited back as the official charity partner, for the event.

Dave Shepherd, Topman MD and one of our trustees (pictured), gave a fantastic speech, encouraging guest companies to support our Outreach Campaign.

We were also delighted to have the help of 33 enthusiastic volunteers from the Fashion Retail Academy who sold scratch cards for our charity prize draw and encouraged guests to make a bid in our silent auction.

Wearing FTCT branded t-shirts and fabulous butterfly fascinators, made and designed by them, especially for the event, the students did a fantastic job, helping us to raise an incredible £13,410!

This money will go directly towards the work we do, providing support to children around the UK, whose parents work in fashion and textile sectors.

We would like to say a massive thank you to everyone who helped make the event such a success, from the staff at Drapers, to our student volunteers from the Fashion Retail Academy and all our FTCT trustees for their support .
