The Fashion & Textile Children's Trust (FTCT) were again delighted to be charity partner at Drapers Digital Awards last night -Tuesday 25 April.

Hosted by Drapers Magazine – the magazine for the fashion industry - over 400 industry experts dined at the wonderful Hilton Bankside, and took part in our charity prize draw raising a total of £2,500. The most we have ever raised at this event!

The top prize was a two night stay at the prestigious Soho Farmhouse in Oxfordshire, donated by TOPMAN. The winner on the night was Stefano from Harrods, who told FTCT,

“Supporting the FTCT with a donation will make a huge difference in someone else’s life and I’m happy to contribute towards such a good cause at the Drapers Awards.

"I was really surprised to be the winner of the prize and I’m very excited to have the chance to spend some time in such a prestigious location.”

PLUS, at every table, one guest won a bottle of champagne - donated by TESCO.

All the proceeds will go towards providing grants to help support children whose parents or carers work in the UK fashion and textile industry. This wouldn't have been possible without the help of our Fashion Retail Academy volunteers, Kamara, Lala, Becca and Hatun (pictured) who enthusiastically helped guest donate.

A huge thank you to everyone who donated and to the Drapers team, including Keely Stocker (Editor) and Laura (Senior Events Manager).
