What a week!
Friday, June 19th, 2015 | Posted in Blog
It’s been a super busy week in the FTCT office. Firstly, ‘IT guys’ Stephen and Tim from Cooperative Solutions have spent the week with us to upgrade our IT systems and install a new server. This means we will have a faster and more efficient network that will bring us into the 21st century! Wahoo!
On Thursday Senior Media Representative Paul Markevicius (pictured),from industry magazine, Fashion Capital visited our office to see first-hand what we do. He interviewed FTCT Director Anna Pangbourne, to learn more about how our charity works with companies such as Hobbs, BHS, M&S and Fashion Enter (managed by Jenny Holloway) to support the education and wellbeing of children of their employees. So watch this space. As soon as the article is published we will share it with you!
Following from our annual industry campaign launched last week, over 200 letters were received by CEO and HR representatives of 150 leading UK retailers alongside an interview with Meg Lustman (CEO Hobbs/FTCT Chair) and Dave Shepherd (COO Arcadia/FTCT Trustee). However, this week expect to see more of us! Drapers have included our poster in every issue of their magazine (Fri 19th) which will reach key influencers and their teams across the UK to let them know all about our charity!
Our industry campaign has also sparked the interest of other leading industry magazines such as Childrenswear Buyer, Menswear Buyer, Wedding Daily, Boutique Magazine, Lancashire Manufacturers’ Association to name a few, who have shared news of our campaign with their readers!
