Charities We Support
During the pandemic we have continued to support our Bayley & Sage community by keeping 7 out of our 8 stores open (now all back up and running), keeping our shelves as full as possible, keeping our staff employed, (in fact we have hired over 40 new people) keeping many of our suppliers trading. We introduced a 10% discount for all NHS workers and have supported 3 NHS hospitals and Felix’s Foundation with food donations in excess of £5000.
We thank you for your support in enabling us to have done this but we would like to do more so we can support small and local charities. Many are suffering at the moment, donations & fund-raising activities have dried up and for
some April, May and June were the main fundraising months. They have had to furlough staff & restrict their activities. We have already pledged £40,000 to three charities but we want to do more, by supporting these charities below:
Those close to the heart of Bayley & Sage that we are actively supporting
#OneLess is changing the way Londoners drink water, from single-use plastic water bottles to refilling and reusing.
Established in 2016 by the Marine CoLABoration, #OneLess was set up as an experiment to turn the tide against single-use plastic within a complex urban setting. Check out their website: www.onelessbottle.org/
Founded 25 years ago, the Lantern Arts Centre is a venue for the community of Raynes Park and beyond, where people of all ages and abilities can learn and develop performance arts skills. Including regular productions, children’s theatre clubs, studio hire, a costume store, film clubs, choirs, dance classes and much more. Check out their website:
Target Ovarian Cancer is the UK’s leading ovarian cancer charity. Who work to improve early diagnosis, fund life-saving research and provide much needed support to women with ovarian cancer.

Momentum Children’s Charity supports children with cancer and life-challenging conditions, and their families, through our unique support programme offered at home and in local hospitals.
