Greenhouse empowers young people in London’s disadvantaged communities to realise their potential through high quality, intensive sport and dance programmes delivered by inspirational coaches.
“We applied to be the charity of the year for HSBC Private Bank and went through a long process to be accepted.
We were very fortunate to be chosen and the relationship has been very beneficial to both Greenhouse and, I would like to think, the bank itself.
The selection made a huge difference to us, as not only did it lead to a large financial contribution to our charity but also an increase in our credibility as we gained a lot of respect from other organisations as a result of it. It made a significant contribution to the growth of Greenhouse allowing us to expand our sport provision to the young people that we work with.
The More You Give’s help and support was crucial to us as it allowed us not only to be selected but also it helped to sustain and expand the relationship to allow us to remain as the bank’s charity for a total of three years. In that time we have been able to build excellent individual relationships with many of the staff.”
