Anna Pangbourne talking on stage at the Drapers Awards 2019.

Our Director Anna Pangbourne pictured introducing the charity on stage at the event.

The Drapers Awards is over for another year and (as ever) it was a brilliant evening. We feel incredibly grateful for the support we were given by everyone at the event.

By taking part in our silent auction, prize draw and by giving generous donations, guests helped us to raise a massive £17,000.

Let’s just let that sink in for a moment.

As a small charity, the difference that will make for our families is HUGE. With an average grant starting at £150, this means we could fund another 110 school uniforms to stop a child feeling embarrassed among their friends. Or another 50 beds to give a child a proper night’s sleep.

Congratulations to Suzanne (pictured above with Anna and Kirsty) who won our prize draw and is off to the Cotswolds for a mini break with extras(?!)

Plus, a huge thank you again to FTCT Mum Jagoda for letting us screen a special video of her and daughter Malina’s grant journey. Watch their video here. 

And of course, a very special thank you to our wonderful volunteers Anna and Nadine for all their help on the night, gathering entries for our prize draw. 

We are so proud to be THE charity for the fashion and textile industry and are delighted to have the on going support of Laura, Kirsty and the team at Drapers.
