Over the years, the team at tlc have been involved with countless events in the Earls Court community, raising money for the local area and the charities we passionately support. From open-air film productions to Casino Royale-themed auction nights, there’s not much we haven’t done!
In a bid to throw down the gauntlet, Directors Toby, Jamie and Samantha have invited the team to take part in their own individual challenges, raising money for charities close to their hearts as they go.
In the first challenge, this weekend, we’ll see Jamie, Samantha and Sean all take part in the 54-mile London to Brighton Cycle Ride. They will set off from Clapham Common before crossing the line at Madeira Drive on the coast.
As a charity close to his heart, Jamie will be raising money for The Outlook Foundation. They aim to empower people with learning disabilities by providing safe, comfortable homes in the community and deliver support, education development and life skills training to enable individuals to achieve their full potential.
The Outlook Foundation was paramount in supporting Jamie’s cousin and his family, so it’s very important to him that they are able to continue their work and hopefully expand their reach.
You can support Jamie’s efforts on his GoFundMe page.
Samantha will be taking on the London to Brighton Cycle Ride to raise money for the Cystic Fibrosis Trust. Cystic fibrosis is a genetic condition that affects more than 10,000 people in the UK, causing a build-up of thick sticky mucus in the lungs, digestive system and other organs.
The Cystic Fibrosis Trust is crucial to fighting for a better future for people with the condition; their cutting-edge research and commitment to improving standards of care are lifesaving.

Since starting his fundraising efforts, our Block Manager Extraordinaire, Sean Stock, has taken on the challenge of raising money for two charities close to him – Noah’s Ark and Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF).
About Noah’s Ark
Noah’s Ark is a children’s hospice that provides clinical, practical and emotional support to babies, children and young people in North/Central London and Hertsmere that are affected by life-limiting or life-threatening conditions. Volunteers provide home support and therapies for families, helping them spend more time together.
For over 30 years, JDRF has been committed to improving the lives of those living with type 1 diabetes. Their world-class research programme was developed to focus on curing, treating and preventing the condition.
For Sean, JDRF is particularly important after his brother was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at the age of 24. At the time, he and his family knew very little about the condition and the effects it can have. The work the team at JDRF do is not only paramount to finding a cure, but also raising awareness too.
In the coming weeks and months, we’ll be publishing a series of blogs focused on the team and the other fundraising challenges they are taking part in; we’ll share updates on their progress and an insight into why they have selected their particular charities.
