Jul '13
Brendan Dorrian (Fawaz Alhokair Fashion), Lucy Harris (Heidrick & Struggles) and Linda Laderman (Linda Laderman PR) will provide expertise, as well as contacts, to assist the expansion of FTCT, which provides grants to disadvantaged children whose parents work within the fashion and textile sector.

“This new role is a perfect way to harness the energy and expertise of those in the industry who are keen to get involved with the charity, while growing a band of loyal supporters who can continue to help FTCT grow,” explains Anna Pangbourne, FTCT director. “Our first ambassadors will be sharing their skills in PR and business development, while introducing FTCT to new executive contacts.”

The ambassadors will work alongside FTCT’s board of trustees, whose members include David Carter-Johnson (chairman) and David Shepherd (Arcadia).
