James Hambro & Partners has joined forces with Greenhouse Sports by becoming an official partner to the London-based charity, which provides inspirational coaching and mentoring within schools to young people from some of the most deprived and vulnerable backgrounds in the city.
Through a range of programmes across a variety of sports, Greenhouse Sports’ coaches and volunteers aim to improve students’ social confidence, education prospects, physical and mental health.
Greenhouse Sports CEO John Herriman said: “We believe high-quality coaching and mentoring can level the playing field for young people who may not have the opportunities and support in their lives to help them reach their full potential. We are thrilled to have James Hambro & Partners join us in this mission and look forward to working closely to harness their enthusiasm and make a difference in the lives of more young people across London.”
James Hambro & Partners Chairman Jamie Hambro was delighted to announce the news. “Greenhouse Sports’ work and results are tremendous,” he said. “This is a charity with whom we feel we share core values, and as such have based this partnership on a vision for shared development whereby we can support their goals, deliver a measurable impact and provide our staff with personal development opportunities.”
The partnership will see James Hambro & Partners commit to a specific school within London, and present staff with volunteering and fundraising opportunities.
The announcement represents a significant milestone for James Hambro & Partners’ burgeoning Corporate and Social Responsibility (CSR) strategy. Partner and Head of Charities Nicola Barber chairs this initiative and is excited by the possibilities it presents.
She said: “We are determined that our firm makes a positive contribution to society. Through our CSR initiative, we are seeking to ensure that we play our part in developing opportunity for those from disadvantaged backgrounds, as well as improving our environmental impact and supporting our staff to realise their own personal ambitions.”
