Johnsons announce new charity partnership

Johnsons Hotel Linen have begun working in partnership with London-based children’s charity, the Fashion & Textile Children’s Trust, to help employees with children, during times of financial crisis.

Employees who seek help are typically experiencing financial difficulties as a result of an unexpected change at home, such as bereavement, a relationship breakdown or an ongoing situation such as illness of a child or parent.

This is over and above any support provided by Johnsons Hotel Linen which includes providing all of its staff an employee assistance programme providing independent confidential telephone support for any financial, emotional or legal support 24 hours a day 7 days a week.

Anna Pangbourne, director of FTCT met Rebecca Morgan, head of HR at Johnsons, at the TSA Spring Conference back in May 2019. Soon after, Johnsons Hotel Linen started promoting the charity to managers and employees throughout the company.

“We are extremely proud to work in partnership with FTCT. It’s great to help families in need, we know this has already had a hugely positive impact for a number of families in the division and I know FTCT would welcome more applications,” commented Mark Woolfenden, managing director, Johnsons Hotel Linen.

FTCT’s Pangbourne said: “We are now working with a number of laundry companies across the UK and it’s managers like Rebecca who can really help make a difference by ensuring employees know about our charity. The fact that nine children have already received support is brilliant and a testament the work Rebecca has done to champion our charity within the company.”

Morgan added, “Challenging personal circumstance can happen at any time, but through our new partnership, we can ensure all Johnsons Hotel Linen employees with children, can access help when they need it most.”
