Drapers is the leading trade publication for fashion retailing. We have been charity partner for Drapers since 2010 and together have raised more than £100,000 to help UK fashion and textile families. 

Over the years, our partnership has brought so much to our small charity. From coverage in the magazine, fundraising support at their prestigious award ceremonies,  to most recently their Covid appeal, Drapers commitment to supporting our charity has enabled us to help many more UK children in fashion and textile families. 

We spoke to Kirsty McGregor, editor of Drapers about our partnership. She commented, “The FTCT has transformed the lives of many families, and with your help, it will be able to provide essential aid to those who have fallen on hard times as a result of the coronavirus pandemic and beyond."   


Drapers x FTCT Covid-19 Appeal


In April 2020, Drapers approached us to set up the Covid-19 appeal, to help the many fashion and textile families being financially impacted by the pandemic. Together, the appeal has raised over 60% of its target, giving £39,000 to fund essential items for children going without.
