Cake, coffee & fancy dress
From cake and coffee mornings to fancy dress, T-T organise a variety of weird and wonderful charity events to raise money for local causes. Fundraising will now start for the local Our Space charity. Last year we raised a whopping £827.89 for the Donna Louise Trust based in Trentham, who provide a palliative care service to children, young people, and their families.
Looking forward to 2017 - T-T Supports Our Space charity
After much deliberation over which worthy cause we should fundraise for over 2016/2017, we have chosen the charity Our Space. It is a growing charity which gives support to young people in the local area with disabilities and their families by providing social and leisure opportunities.
Committee member at Our Space, Hannah Dean, said:
“The North Staffs Special Adventure Playground on Stanier Street, Newcastle-under-Lyme closed its doors at the end of December & the charity is now in the process of being wound up. Ex staff, volunteers, members and their families have come together to create 'Our Space', a new charity that aims to fill the gap created when the NSSAP closed. At present, we are providing small club sessions from community centres… It is going to be an exciting year for our charity as we will be moving in to our permanent premises in January which will enable us to start to expand the service we offer to children and adults who have a disability and their families.”

So why do we do it?
At T-T we really believe in supporting charitable causes in the local area. There are so many charities out there that all do fantastic jobs but we really feel that some of the smaller charities based locally to ourselves are the ones that require the most support. Not only are charity events fun for all our team, but we all get together to raise cash that can contribute to the support of a charity.
We hope that we can provide significant support over the year to help Our Space charity grow and make a real difference to the local community.
In the diary
Our first event in support of Our Space charity will be a spooktacular Halloween day, where our offices will be taken over by ghouls, witches and zombies for the day! Stay tuned for gruesome photos and grisly treats.
