Our Director of Programmes Jason Bacon has been training hard these past few months, since joining Team Greenhouse and signing up to run the 2017 Virgin Money London Marathon in support of our inspirational sport programmes. He got a special boost to spur him on in advance of the big day when he had the opportunity to meet HRH Prince Harry, who attended the Virgin Money London Marathon Expo on 19 April to cut the ribbon and officially open the event.
Jason was given this special opportunity, thanks to the London Marathon Charitable Trust, of which Prince Harry is a patron.
The London Marathon Charitable Trust are one of many generous supporters of the refurbishment of our new flagship sport centre with a £500,000 grant, for which we are extremely grateful. The sports centre will provide an outlet for the surrounding community to be active and healthy, and will be a safe, accessible and welcoming space where young people from our programmes and beyond can thrive and grow.
