Our Tickets.com UK team took some time away from the office last week to support the Milton Keynes Christian Foundation’s Growing People project as part of the UK T.Cares program.
A worldwide initiative, the T.Cares program sees Tickets.com employees better the communities where we work and live, by supporting local community efforts with raising funds for various charities and providing community service.
The latest organization supported by the UK team is the Milton Keynes Christian Foundation. Their Growing People project is a horticultural social enterprise, which works with disengaged young people to grow organic seasonal fresh fruit, vegetables, salad and flowers for the local community at their Urb Farm based in Wolverton.
Natalie Jones, the internal sales manager at Tickets.com, was part of the committee that organized the day. She said: “Initiatives like Urb Farm really do make a difference to our local community and we were only too happy to dedicate our time to support the project.
“A few members of our team have previously attended open days at the farm and experienced the fantastic work that the Milton Keynes Christian Foundation does to support those in need, so it was a great fit for our T.Cares program.”
The Tickets.com team spent the afternoon of Friday, September 22nd helping out on the farm, gardening, tidying, and providing general maintenance work to support the staff who run the project.
Lisa Hodgson the Learning Tree Coordinator/ Special Educational Needs Coordinator at Urb Farm said: “I just wanted to say a huge thank you for all the work that the lovely team at Tickets.com carried out at the farm. Those were all jobs that have been on our ‘to do list’ all season, but we just haven’t had the time, so everyone involved has made a big difference! We hope the team enjoyed it and that no one was too stiff and achy the next day!”
