We are delighted to introduce our first ever charity partners, BuildAid. This small charity completes urgently needed construction projects overseas for people affected by natural disasters, families living in extreme poverty and children rescued from exploitation. Glenhawk will be helping to fund community buildings such as classrooms and children’s shelters, in the Philippines and Kenya.
A month ago, our CEO Guy Harrington volunteered to take part in the Inspired MIPIM Rally to help raise funds for BuildAid. The group drove over 1000 miles from London to Cannes across 3 days and were joined by a representative from the charity. Guy was inspired by the work of BuildAid and committed to helping long-term. Unfortunately, he was unable to raise sponsorship for the event as he was a last minute addition following a dropout, so he decided to make a generous donation towards the charity from his own pocket.
“To us, being a responsible and professional company means having a social conscience and using our resources to help others, especially those living in extreme poverty. BuildAid appeals to us a small, professional charity, where we can really see where the money goes and have complete confidence in the quality of their projects. Glenhawk are very proud to be supporting such a worthwhile cause, we look forward to working with the charity and seeing their impact for many years to come”
