Hospice in the Weald Charity Run

Last week was a busy one at Greenstone.  Not only did we celebrate our first birthday in style at the Shard, but on Sunday, Catherine Greeves, one of our co-founders, ran in the Tunbridge Wells Hospice in the Weald 10k race.  She managed to complete in an astounding (for her) 56.10 minutes, meaning she was rewarded with a medal presented by Dame Kelly Holmes.

She was joined (for which read “dragged round”) by her good friend Stella Richardson, herself a seasoned runner.

Over 600 runners took part in the race which is supposedly one of the hilliest in the local area (that’s Catherine’s excuse and she’s sticking to it).

The event raises funds for Hospice in the Weald which provides valuable palliative and relief care and support for patients and their families.

Greenstone birthday celebrations

The Greenstone team, clients and friends, celebrate their first birthday in style at The Shard, London

On Tuesday 20th September, Greenstone celebrated its first birthday with around 45 clients, family and professional connections.  The party took place in the Foresight offices on the 23rd floor of The Shard.

Guests were treated to a fabulous view, great wine courtesy of Barry Dick from Wine Superhero and a wonderful selection of the Best of British food by Freddie Southwell from Wild Seasoning catering.

Michael and Catherine took the opportunity to reflect on how far the business has come in the past year; from fledgling planning firm to a business which is building its reputation by attracting a wide range of clients with bespoke planning and tax needs and all of this in an environment of significant political and economic environment.

Michael said “As a firm, we recognise that none of this would have been possible without the patience and support of those who attended and we were therefore very pleased to celebrate a great night with them”.
