Wigan Cricket Club Sponsorship
Greenmount are proud to announce we have become the main sponsor for Wigan Cricket Club's Junior Section. The company will be working alongside Wigan Cricket Club to assist them in creating a brilliant arena for the coaches and volunteers, hopefully we will see England's future team nurturing their skills in the coming days.
Wigan Cricket Club -
Our focus to become a ‘Community Club’ is fully shared by Greenmount Projects: we thank Mike Sharkey and his team for placing their faith in our ability and desire to deliver access to children of all ages, to participate in cricket and by extension, other sporting activities at Wigan Sports Club.
Wigan Youth Zone Toy Appeal
During Christmas, the Greenmount team asked our supply chain to provide toys instead of the usual bottles/items they would normally gift. The aim was to collect 100 presents for the WYZ toy appeal. Very generously we were gifted with over 250 toys, for both boys and girls of all ages!
To contribute to the cause, the Greenmount MD also donated a new mountain bike.
The toy drive is a great example of what can happen when businesses pull together to support the community.
Wigan Youth Zone Easter Delivery
In conjunction with Wigan Youth Zone, Greenmount Projects undertook a 5k challenge around Wigan's 'Jewel in the Crown' Haigh Woodland Park. The team completed the run individually and received generous donations from their family and friends.
Being distributed by the Youth Zone to the young people of Wigan, the money raised allowed team Greenmount to deliver over 100 Easter eggs. At Greenmount, we are focused on fundraising for our young people and believe it's important to keep a strong bond with the members of your community and help out wherever possible.
Greenmount Projects are now in partnership with Optimum Sport to provide teamwear for local sports clubs. The partnership will allow both businesses to offer discounted match wear and a loyalty scheme to grassroots sports teams.
Pete: "We're trying our best to help [local teams] as much as we can. We said we would support the junior and amateur teams in Wigan and Northwest and it ties nicely in with us celebrating our 25th anniversary"
Our Director Mike Sharkey has been friends with Pete for over 35 years, both lend support and are involved in local rugby. Greenmount Projects have a number of ex-local rugby players and are strongly connected to Wigan St Patricks Amateur Rugby League Club, which makes this partnership even more special for us. Up the Pats!
The Very Group Competition
Following from the successful launch of the new office space and way of working, The Very Group held an internal competition to build excitement about their new office space.
Greenmount Projects donated the grand prize which consists of a lovely rocking chair and side table, and were also honoured to deliver the prize to the winner, Meriel Holmes and her adorable puppy Charlie. We were so honoured to be involved in this competition and were overjoyed to work with Meriel to help her choose the colours and fabric for the chair.
In encouraging more staff and students to cycle to work and their place of study, Wigan and Leigh College held a competition for one lucky person to win a brand new bicycle and kit bag.
Supporting Wigan and Leigh with this, Greenmount Projects donated the winning prize to the College, which was won by a fortunate student, Anthony.
Encouraging a happy and healthy community is high on our priority list and Greenmount were grateful to be apart of this competition.
