Function has a history of supporting charities and the latest very worthy cause that has been assisted is the Fashion & Textile Children’s Trust, a small charity with a long history of supporting families in the UK fashion and textile industry.


Founded in 1853, FTCT supports children aged 0-18 years who are coping with sickness, disability or special needs, whose families are in financial crisis, or where their parent is unwell or cannot work.

By providing grants for extra-curricular costs, clothing, uniforms, school extras, therapies and more, FTCT support hundreds of children every year.

FTCT is moving to new offices in Bermondsey this month and Function’s Tony Factor, himself the son of a former seamstress, was keen to help.


Tony Factor:

“As a company we were able to help FTCT by providing stock from our stock of used furniture that we had on our Function Office Clearance website. We provided a variety of equipment including desks, chairs, a lovely oak meeting table, storage units and a settee and I hope that FTCT have continued success in their new home.”
