T. Bailey Supports works in corporate partnership with two locally-based charities a year, in order to give back to a community which we are proud to be a part of.
We are extremely happy to announce that our chosen charities for 2017 are the Nottinghamshire Hospice and Lincs & Notts Air Ambulance.
We support Nottinghamshire Hospice because:
For individuals who have been diagnosed with limiting or terminal illnesses, the Nottinghamshire Hospice provides an invaluable source of care and comfort for both patients and families. T. Bailey is a family-owned business with a supportive corporate culture, therefore giving back to such a cause is a fantastic opportunity. 50% of the £40million required annually to keep the Hospice services running is raised through a combination of donations and fundraising, which T. Bailey can contribute to.
Lincs & Notts Air Ambulance matters to us because:
With speed being of critical importance when someone is in a serious accident or is taken ill, the Lincs & Notts ‘Ambucopter’ is an indispensable resource. It comes as a surprise that our local Air Ambulance charity, and others like it, rely entirely on fundraising and donations to fund every operation; from equipment to staff to training, and ultimately saving patient’s lives. £2.1 million is needed yearly to keep flying, meaning any impact T. Bailey can make is all the more valuable.

The Big Purple Party week!
During the week of 22nd – 26th of May the T. Bailey team took part in the Nottinghamshire Hospice ‘Big Purple Party Week’. This is an event run by the hospice to raise funds and awareness through many different ‘purple themed’ activities.
To help support one of our chosen charities, the T. Bailey team held a ‘bake off’ event as well as a purple dress down day which raised a fabulous £102!! Some members of the team also volunteered to join in with a bag packing event in the Nottingham Marks and Spencer’s food Hall and were part of a team that helped raise an amazing £1,560!
T. Bailey quiz night in aid of Lincs and Notts Air Ambulance
On Friday 21st April, T. Bailey hosted a fantastic quiz at the Ned Ludd in Nottingham! The quiz included 6 different rounds including ‘Guess the Picture’, ‘True or False’ and of course some general knowledge questions. A huge congratulations goes to team ‘Betty’s Boy’s’ who won 1st prize and to everyone else who took part and raised a grand total of £93.95 for the Lincs and Notts Air Ambulance!
Gardening at the Nottinghamshire Hospice
Some of the T. Bailey team recently spent the day volunteering in the beautiful gardens of the Nottinghamshire Hospice by weeding, planting and digging to make space for the new greenhouse!
