Lisa, Carone and Cameo

Twin boys, Carone and Cameo (11) live with their mother Lisa who works for Topshop. Soon to start secondary school, Lisa contacted the Fashion & Textile Children’s Trust (FTCT) for support and was awarded £250 towards new school uniforms and PE kits for the boys.

“At the time I was feeling like a failure and I felt like I couldn’t provide for my children, but then I knew that as a mother I have to do what is best for my children even if that means seeking help from a charity.

Carone and Cameo were so excited when they heard about the grant and I was so happy I started to cry!”

“As soon as FTCT got in touch with me and gave me the good news the weight and stress was immediately lifted, knowing the boys will be ok and will start a new school in their new school uniforms. Carone and Cameo were so excited when they heard about the grant and I was so happy I started to cry!”
