The Brooke understands the importance of working partnerships to help us achieve our mission. Whether your company is a small or medium enterprise (SME), a family-run business or a large commercial operation, there are many different ways for you to get involved.
We are delighted to announce a new partnership with Lale, to raise funds for the Brooke. Lale is a womenswear design studio, selling through their website www.lalestyle.com, as well as notonthehighstreet.com/lale, and dotted in various little boutiques around the UK and Europe.
Lale have committed to donating 5% sales to the Brooke.
A UK-based company, Lale also has roots in Turkey, where their fabrics are sourced and style originally inspired. The name “lale” (pronounced la-lay) means “tulip“, and expresses the spirit of their designs: romantic, charming, timeless.
Initially conceived in the early 2000s, Lale was created as a more luxurious alternative to classic bohemian styles – using very careful tailoring, draping and luxurious, natural fabrics. They’re prized Aegean Cotton is considered perhaps the finest the in the world. Grown in the ancient Aegean Region, it’s GMO-free and all hand-picked to preserve the cotton’s unique softness and brilliant lustre – which bring out the rich, striking colours in the clothes.

Giving through your payroll
Payroll Giving or Give As You Earn is a tax-free and easy way for employees to make a regular donation to the Brooke. Gifts are deducted straight from your gross salary, giving immediate tax relief. So, if you choose to donate £10 a month to the Brooke via Payroll Giving, it will only cost you £8.00 if you are a basic rate taxpayer, and even less if you are a higher rate taxpayer
Employers: setting up Give as You Earn (GAYE) is easier than you think
- All you need to do is register with a Payroll Giving Agency (PGA) approved by the Inland Revenue (link opens in new window).
- Once you are registered, all you need to do is send on payroll giving forms you receive from your employees to your PGA and they will do the rest.The PGA is responsible for adding the tax onto a donor's gift and transferring the total sum to the donor's nominated charity.
Our team will be able to assist you in setting-up and promoting the scheme to your employees; please email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
