About us News and Blog Drapers Awards raises over £24,000 for FTCT On Thursday 30th November 2017, London's iconic venue the Camden Roundhouse hosted a magical celebration for the fashion retail industry- the Drapers Fashion Awards (pictured below left). With high profile guests from across the industry, we hosted a silent auction and charity raffle which raised over £24,000 for FTCT. With prizes ranging from a luxury villa holiday for 10 in Bali, to a top gun flying experience and VIP Ed Sheeran tickets, guests dug deep on the night to help raising this astounding amount for our charity. Plus, each table had the chance to take part in our special charity prize draw where for £20 they could win a relaxing weekend break at one of five luxury rural hotels in 'The Pig' chain, generously donated by NEXT. The lucky winner on the night was Joe Little from Tesco (pictured below right). Our wonderful volunteers The night wouldn't have been such a success without the help of our wonderful volunteers from the Fashion Retail Academy and New Look volunteers Kamilla and Brenda (pictured below left). The students gave up their evening to greet guests, promote our prize draw and support guests with their donations. They even managed to meet some of their personal idols from the industry, including former editor of British Vogue Alexandra Shulman (pictured below right with some of the volunteers) who kindly gave the girls some tips from her illustrious career.
