About us News and Blog London Marathon place available supporting FTCT Is running a marathon likely to be on your New Year’s resolution list this January? We have a great opportunity for one more runner to take part in the iconic Virgin Money London Marathon on Sunday 22 April 2018 and raise funds for the Fashion & Textile Children’s Trust (FTCT). Raising funds for FTCT – how you can help us We believe no fashion or textile family should struggle financially to meet their child's basic needs. FTCT grants go towards families who work in the fashion and textile industry who need financial help for their child’s basic school equipment or maybe specialist mobility or sensory equipment if their child has additional needs. Your fundraising will go towards helping hundreds of children. Find out how an FTCT grant has helped families in the industry. Make a commitment today! This is a once in a lifetime opportunity for someone with a passion for fashion, textiles and running! There is time to get a training schedule in place and we’ll help you start your fundraising as soon as possible. Please take a look at the information you will need to know. When you contact us, we’ll let you know how we can support you. Selection for this place is based on you giving us details on how you plan to raise the minimum sponsorship amount of £2500, for example, from family and friends, work sponsorship, bake sale, fashion/fabric sample sale, etc. FTCT is very proud to offer you this chance to take part in this event – please contact Janet and let her know that you would like to be considered for a place.
