Timmy has always had an interest in childrens’ charities and is especially interested in any that deal with drama, education, sport and helping children to achieve their potential or have their dreams come true.
The Thames Valley Air Ambulance has been operating since 1999 and Timmy has often seen the flourescent yellow helicopter flying over his house. He was amazed to find it needs a £1 million pounds a year to keep it operating 7 days a week. The Air Ambulance makes up to 10 emergency calls a day.
On the day Timmy went to visit, the helicopter was called out three time in the space of an hour. One of the calls was for a child who had fallen from the school climbing frame at Cookham Rise School near Timmy’s home. The Air Ambulance landed on the school playing fields and the child was rushed to hospital in minutes! This is vital work that should be funded by the NHS, but until it is, charitable donations keep it in the air.
Please help any way you can.

Gladstone’s Library in Hawarden, North Wales was founded by Prime Minister Gladstone in 1902. Timmy’s family connection began with his dad, Michael Mallett who trained as a clergyman there in the 1960s. This residential library helps clergy and others on sabbaticals and retreats and is used by hundreds of people from around the world.
A recent course of “Greek in a week!" helped people to discover the pleasure of residential study. It’s an important centre that Timmy is proud to be associated with.

Timmy helped in the fund raising for the new church bells at Holy Trinity, Cookham. £70,000 has been raised for a new frame and two new bells bringing it up to a ring of 10. Timmy started bellringing as a teenager and now it’s a family thing with son Billy pulling the ropes too.
The oldest bell at Cookham dates back to 1635 at it’s amazing to think they’ve been rung week in and week out for over 370 years! It’s the weirdest thing to watch bellringing in action! But hey, it sounds good! You can find out more by keeping an ear out any of the thousands of churches with bells.
Timmy is Trustee of Family Friendly Churches a charity aiming at making Churches more appealing to families.
Timmy narrated and acted an amazing version of the classic Peter and the Wolf with a 50 piece orchestra in the unusual setting of the church in High Wycombe!
He caused a stir by climbing onto the pulpit for the dramatic part where Peter catches the wolf and then almost strangled the lead violinist!
The evening was hosted by Timmy’s good friend and neighbour, Carol Vorderman, in aid of Tele Med.
