Thank you so much for visiting Miller’s fundraising page.

Answering the Drapers appeal for FTCT Miller is walking 5K locally to help fundraise to provide essential clothing, furniture, equipment & therapies to the children of families in the fashion industry facing financial difficulty during the current Covid -19 crisis.

Coronavirus has forced large & small fashion retailers across the country to close their doors and in many cases, shut down their operations. The result: job losses across the industry with many more undoubtedly on the horizon.

This will have a big impact on the industry’s workers, sadly some of these families will fall through the governments support schemes and will be in need. The Fashion & Textile Children’s Trust (FTCT) provides grants to support families in the industry facing financial difficulties.

In the last three weeks, applications for the trusts grants have trebled, as the families of those employed in fashion retail struggle to make essential purchases. As a result, funds have depleted, and the charity needs additional support.

Miller & I are hoping to raise enough to help a family in need, to raise awareness of the help offered by the charity and to encourage others to get involved in fundraising. Our sponsored walk is something positive we can focus on together during these challenging times that are effecting us all in one way or another.

If you are able to and would like to sponsor Miller’s walk with a small contribution to help the trust support those in need we would be so grateful. Our donations together could make a big difference to a child’s life.

Thank you so much for reading about Miller’s fundraising walk and the work of FTCT, we are sending love to all during these difficult times.

Best wishes,
Miller & his Mummy

Note: It is likely because Miller is 2 that we will walk 5K over 2 days. We will start the walk on Saturday 9th May.
