Shrewsbury Town Football Club and the Greenhous Group are pleased to announce a one-year extension to their main sponsor agreement, taking the Greenhous Group's association, as both the stadium and shirt sponsors with the club, through to the end of the 2016-17 season.
After a hard week at work many of us take part in hobbies or interests that we use to relax at the weekend. Some like walking or playing sport, others fish or just chill out in front of the television. For a few, a more energetic pastime with a guaranteed adrenaline rush is what is required and this is certainly the case for Scott Mullard, an HGV Technician at Greenhous DAF in Shrewsbury.
This Saturday, 29th August, a group of 15 riders will take on a cycle tour from the Greenhous Vauxhall dealership in Trench Lock, Telford to Portmadog, on the North wales coast, a journey of 120 miles. The cyclists are mainly staff at Greenhous dealerships from Shrewsbury and Telford. The purpose of the trip is to raise funds on behalf of the Layla Jane Pitt Remembrance Trust, the proceeds of sponsorship are being used to provide equipment at the Alder Hey Children’s Hospital and ongoing support for Hope House Children’s Hospice.
Greenhous Nissan displayed three of their range of vehicles on a rare warm and dry day in Shrewsbury Square. The range included an entry level Micra, an electric LEAF and the sporty Juke Nismo.
Now not many people would describe a 50 mile cycle ride as a jolly good time, but Mark Hughes, managing director of Jolly Good Vehicle Rentals, would disagree. His brainchild last year was to arrange a charity cycle ride to raise funds for local charities. The ‘Le Tour de Jolly’ was launched and around 100 participants raised £10,000 which was donated to local causes, including Christmas presents for poorly children, a dementia charity and playground equipment. A repeat event is set for Sunday, 13th September with the start and finish at the Jolly Good Head Office in Wrexham.
A group of mainly Greenhous staff enjoy Monday night 5-a-side football sessions in Shrewsbury and this has led to occasional Friday night 11-a-side fixtures with other teams culminating in a charity challenge match in which they won the Cup!
Staff from the head office of the Greenhous Group have entered a team into the Macmillan World Championship Coracle Relay Race to be held on Friday, 11th September from 2pm on the River Severn in Shrewsbury.
If you go down to Hoo Farm Animal Kingdom near Telford you are sure of many a surprise. Along with the hundreds of different species of animals on show, opportunities to pet many of them, the activity areas for children and the popular sheep racing is an area where electric cars and tractors are driven around a track by budding young drivers.
In an unusual venture Greenhous has entered into the exciting world of sheep racing with a sponsorship deal with Hoo Farm Animal Kingdom. One of the highlights of a day visit to Hoo Farm is the moment when a flock of sheep, each carrying a knitted jockey, get to tackle a steeplechase course with the first to get their head in the food trough at the finishing post declared the winner!
