Pure London returns to FTCT as official charity partner

Pure London’s official charity partner, Fashion & Textile Children’s Trust (FTCT), will return to the show this August. Established in 1853, FTCT is a registered charity which provides grants to support the well-being of children where their parent or carer has a trade connection with the UK fashion and textile industry.

Whether it’s providing respite for a child who is a registered carer for her parent, extra tutorial support for a young person struggling to cope with learning difficulties, or school uniform for a child when times at home have got a little tough, FTCT’s grants can make a huge difference.

The charity has seen a 43% increase in the number of children they support compared to last year, now working with over 79 UK fashion companies as well as Pure London.

Anna Pangbourne, Director of FTCT, commented, “We are thrilled to be working with Pure London again this August; we were overwhelmed with the response we received at February’s show. Not only did we meet many parents and carers from across the industry, making them aware of the support we can give, but with the help of the fabulous Pure London team, we raised a massive £2,473.24, through visitor donations.

“We are really looking forward to being back at the show this August and to meeting many more visitors, working in the UK fashion and textile industry, whose children we may be able to help.”

Pure London’s Event Manager, Sarah Lawrence commented, “We are delighted to be joining forces with FTCT again this year.  The charity carries out some exceptional work helping the children of people working in the fashion industry. It is important we support the charity to help them continue to grow and raise awareness from within the industry itself. All proceeds from this year’s Pure London event guide will go to FTCT - so please do give generously.”
