At Sitting On A Sofa we are conscious about giving back to the industry that we’ve worked in, we have therefore chosen to collaborate with a charity called Fashion & Textile Children’s Trust.
How it works
Every time you purchase an item with us we will donate £5 of our profit to our chosen charity FTCT allowing us to help make a difference and support a very good cause.
The Fashion & Textile Children’s Trust is a small charity with a long history of providing financial support to families in the UK fashion and textile industry.
The charity was founded back in 1853 when the cotton weaving industry was thriving. A group of textile merchants formed a financial Trust fund, to support the children and widow of a former colleague.
The Trust grew in size and funds to help more children of those working in the allied textile trades. Over the years the Trust’s work attracted the support of some prestigious figures, including the author Charles Dickens, who was their Chairman of Appeal in 1856.
Today their vision is that no fashion or textile family should have to struggle financially to meet their child’s basic needs. Please visit their website for more information and to read about the families that they have helped.
