Friday 30 August is Kurt Salmon’s global charity powerday and seven members of the UK team, including its managing director Helen Mountney, will be working on projects for The Fashion & Textile Children’s Trust (FTCT).

FTCT gives grants to help children who are coping with sickness, disability or special needs, whose families are in financial crisis, or where their parent is unwell or cannot work.

On powerday, the Kurt Salmon team will be providing a snap shot of the UK fashion and textile industry  (salary scales, industry hot spots, to include manufacturing and distribution); assisting with the future vision and mission of the charity; providing guidance on advanced data analysis and brainstorming fund-raising events.

“We are thrilled that Kurt Salmon has chosen FTCT as one of its powerday charities,” says Anna Pangbourne, director, FTCT. “It will be great to have their expert knowledge of the industry and their enthusiasm to help us think outside the box.”

According to Stephen Taylor, senior manager, Kurt Salmon, getting involved in a charity that supports employees within the retail and manufacturing sector is a “perfect match” for the business.

“It’s a great opportunity to use our business expertise to help disadvantaged children in our industry.”
