Our Marathon runners, Gaby and Will are pictured holding their FTCT t-shirts up. Will is a white male, mid twenties with glasses  and a beard and shaved head. Gaby is a white female, mid twenties, with long blonde hair.

We are delighted to introduce Will and Gaby who are running the London Marathon for our charity this autumn. They’ll be raising much needed funds to support children in fashion and textile families, who are living without life's basics. Whilst most of us are relaxing enjoying the summer, Will and Gaby are busy with their training schedule, getting themselves ready for the big day.  

On Sunday 2nd October 2022, Will and Gaby will be running the TCS London Marathon to raise money for the Fashion & Textile Children's Trust and Aid International. 

Why they chose FTCT? 

Will: "I first heard about FTCT during my time working at M&S in their clothing and home business; I was touched by the amazing stories of where they had made a real difference to the families they support, and I knew I wanted to do my small part to help. I'm hoping to raise £2000 which will go a long way towards providing a child in need with the basics needed to excel and flourish, no matter their situation."

Gaby: "Every year the FTCT provides grants to ensure children of workers in fashion & textiles have access to essentials like clothing, bedroom furniture, and appliances. I realise with the recent cost of living crisis and pandemic it has put a strain on families that work in the retail/fashion industry and I would love to support these families in any way possible."
