Johnsons Service Group Boosts FTCT’s Winter Appeal

Trade charity the Fashion & Textile Children’s Trust has announced it raised over £19,000 in its first winter appeal, boosted by the fundraising efforts of Johnsons Service Group (JSG).

During the month of December, JSG hosted a 12 Days of Christmas Raffle across all their UK sites and raised £10,000 for the winter appeal. Staff entered to win daily prizes with incremental price increases, ranging from Amazon vouchers, to a prize worth around £1000 on the final day.

Rebecca Morgan – Head of HR Johnsons Hotel Linen commented, “At Johnson Service Group, we are proud to have taken part in the Fashion & Textile Children’s Trust, Winter Appeal.” “It’s a great cause supporting families and their children, especially during winter which we recognise can be a difficult time due to the harsher cold weather and pressure on families with added expenses during the festive period.” The money raised will go towards supporting parents who work in the fashion and textile industry, by paying for the life essentials their kids need: from cosy duvets, to warm winter coats and ovens for hot meals.

Anna Pangbourne, CEO of FTCT commented, “Our success wouldn’t have been possible without the support of our incredible partners, including the phenomenal efforts by JSG. Their commitment to our cause has made a real difference to the lives of many children.”

The Trust gives grants for children’s essential items, to parents who work in the UK fashion and textile industry, including those in the laundry sector.

Less than a month into the new year and the Trust has already sent £15,000 in grants to industry families who are in financial difficulty, due to a sudden change in home circumstances and ongoing issues such as health issues.

The Trust runs two fundraising appeals every year and looks to the industry for support. Their next appeal will focus on School Uniform and starts in June.
