We’ve just returned from Meet the Manufacturer – a hugely successful 2 day trade event in London and brilliant for our charity, too! Nearly 100 exhibitors attended – all British clothing manufacturers, textile mills, leather goods makers and suppliers to the UK apparel and textile industry. Many other organisations and friends of FTCT were also there including UKFT, Leicester Textiles Hub, Fashion Capital and Fashion Enter. To see more photos of the event click here.

Supported by Kate Hills, founder and CEO of Make It British, Kate said: “As a trade charity – specifically for the industry including all of our exhibitors and visitors here at Meet the Manufacturer – we had to show our support and invite them along”.

The show gave the FTCT team a brilliant opportunity to personally talk with every exhibitor on their stand and lots of visitors on our own stand too, that were keen to find out more about the support we can give to the children of their employees – and take part in our Lucky Dip! We’d also like to congratulate Mark Hubert from Vanners (as pictured above) who is the winner of our business card drop – a bottle of champagne is on its way to you, soon…

Finally, a huge thank you to Kate – without shows like these we would not be able to reach so many companies. If you work in any UK manufacturer, mill or any other supplier to the UK fashion and textile industry and you’d like to find out more about the support we can give, please call Anna on 020-7232-1876 /
