Greenhouse Sports

Greenhouse Sports SalesStar UK Charity Partner

Table of Contents

Greenhouse Sports are a charity based in London whose mission is to “deliver intensive sports coaching and mentoring to help develop the Social, Thinking, Emotional and Physical (STEP) abilities of young people from disadvantaged communities.”

Greenhouse employs full-time sport coaches to work directly in schools, Special Educational Needs & Disabilities (SEND) schools and through community clubs based around London, where they deliver sport and mentoring programmes before, during and after schooltime, as including the weekends and holidays. 

“We partner with schools where over two-thirds of children are living below the poverty line, according to Income Deprivation Affecting Children Index (IDACI). They work to see schools, where lack of equipment, transport and cost is not an issue, open before school hours, on evenings, weekends and over the holidays to provide key support for young people and the benefits of extra-curricular activities are wide-ranging: broadening access to education and helping families on low incomes with childcare.”

Greenhouse Sports became SalesStar UK’s charity partner with each member of the UK team taking part in fundraising activities to raise money with the goal of raising £10k for the charity.

SalesStar's Fundraising

In April 2022, SalesStar UK Practice Partner, Pete Evans took part in the ‘Run for the Roof’ challenge which saw its runners taking part in an ultramarathon (100 miles) around London. Pete joined the team for the first sector from Greenhouse Sports HQ to Richmond lasting 15 miles! 

SalesStar UK produced this highlight package for Greenhouse Sports capturing the 24 hour challenge:

In May 2022, high-performance sales coach Tim Ogle took part in the RideLondon 100 mile cycling event which involved cycling the streets of London up to the county of Essex and back. Pete Evans also got involved in the Great Manchester Run as part of his fundraising activities. 

In June 2022, our youngest members of the SalesStar UK team completed the Yorkshire Three Peaks challenge which included scaling up three of the tallest peaks in the Yorkshire Dales. The 26 mile hike took the duo just over 10 hours to complete.

In September 2022, Pete Evans continued his running efforts taking part in the 2022 Great North Run.
