Over the years we have always tried to do our bit for charities in Cork, this year we’ve decided to take part in the Cork City Marathon, in aid of Cork Simon Community, going the extra mile to give back to our community and help fight homelessness in our city.

The countdown is on!
With less than 2 weeks to go till the Cork City Marathon on Sunday, June 3rd, the training is in full swing! From lunchtime jogs in running sandals (yes, you read correctly!) to weekend mileage; through rain, hail or shine, our team are enthusiastic and excited for the big race!

Who are Cork Simon Community? 
Cork Simon works in solidarity with men and women who are homeless in Cork, offering housing and support in their journey back in independent living. Cork Simon Community help people to find a way to a place they can call home. A lifeline that’s changing lives every day.
The past few years Greenhouse has also had the pleasure of working on the branding for their annual fundraising ball held at Fota Island Resort, which is one of Cork Simon’s most important calendar events.
