‘do good in the world, until there is enough good in the world’

It has always been the belief of Darren Greenaway to help the local community and this belief continues through Greenaway Residential Ltd and our own charity ‘The Greenaway Foundation’.

The Foundation is a Charitable Incorporated Organisation and is registered at the Charity Commission in England with registered charity number 1187817.  Registered office Boscobel House, 109 High Street, Crawley, West Sussex, RH10 1DD.

The primary aim of the charity is to help local financially challenged families with ad hoc help who ‘fly under the radar’ of getting formal help. Families are usually brought to our attention through local schools, council bodies and other charities.  We will do everything we can to help, which can be from buying school uniforms and providing food or travel amongst many other things.  However, when we are made aware of a problem we will try our best to help.

Although we have fundraising events throughout the year, Greenaway Residential Estate Agents also donates 10% of all company profits to The Greenaway Foundation.

A big focus of what we do to help families is at Christmas.  We source, pack and deliver all the ingredients a family needs to cook a healthy two course Christmas dinner. Children from nominated families are encouraged to make a wish for a Christmas present via our ‘wishing trees’, we will then do all we can to either sponsor or find a sponsor to make the wish come true. For Christmas 2023 we made deliveries to just under 900 families and made over 1,600 children very happy by delivering a present that they wished for.

Over the years we have had help on Christmas Eve from the MP’s and Mayors from Crawley, Horley and East Grinstead, TV comedian Romesh Ranganathan, News At Ten royal reporter and presenter Nicolas Owen, Lord Lieutenant of West Sussex and the High Sheriff Of West Sussex.  It is our ambition for Christmas 2024 to feed over 5000 people which should mean we deliver Christmas meals to approximately 1,000 families and make 2,000 children’s wishes come true.

If you would like to get involved with any of the Foundation’s work in the community please do not hesitate to contact Darren Greenaway.

In 2018, 2019 & 2021 The Greenaway Foundation was shortlisted for an award at the National Negotiator Awards and in March 2019 was recognised by the Crawley Community Awards for the charity work carried out.  We are delighted to say we won an award at this event for ‘Best Charity’.

We encourage anyone in our community to help and to ‘do good in the world until there is enough good in the world‘.
