Tanya was the founder of the TLC charity which was set-up in 2007 to support the charitable projects of Tanya’s international team.
Importantly for Tanya the charity was not just about giving money but about rolling up sleeves and getting stuck in alongside the local community to improve facilities and environments.
In 2007 Tanya took all the UK team to Cape Town for a ground-breaking 10-day project to build Grade R classrooms in Vuyani Primary school in Gugulethu township.
In 2008 the team improved IT & learning facilities in a home for handicapped children in Shanghai, China.
In 2009 TLC came home to the UK and built an outdoor learning area for a school for the deaf in Balham, London.
