We're a small charity that helps children of parents or carers who work in UK fashion and textiles. Getting help from FTCT is really simple- all you need to do is just give us a call.

Santa Run 2017

The Christmas festivities are approaching and to kick off the season of goodwill to all, you can sign up to raise funds for FTCT at this year’s Santa Run on 3rd December 2017.

The annual Do It For Charity event is again being held at Victoria Park, in London’s east end on a festive Sunday morning.

You can walk, jog or run around a 5 or 10k course, join up with friends, work colleagues and family members – you can even run with your dog. It really is a great day out for everyone. There are prizes for the best dressed Santa, elf or snowman – for adults, children and canines!

Here’s a video from last year’s event. Look out for our FTCT runners (and mini rummer) wearing their blue button badges.


Raising funds for FTCT grants

We ask you to raise a minimum of £100, with funds raised used to support children whose families work in UK fashion and textiles. The grants are donations to families which do not have to be repaid and provide essential items including clothing, bedding and shoes for children or mobility and sensory equipment for children with additional needs. Read about some of the families who have received a grant.

So, jingle the Christmas bells, gather your friends – registration costs just £25 per adult (£10 for children) – which includes your very own Santa suit.

To take part in the Santa run click here to register your name on the DoItForCharity website.
