Hamptons International (previously Greene & Co) have sponsored the YMCA North London Fun Run & Festival for the past eight years and we are delighted to announce our continued support of this fantastic North London fundraising and community event once again, in 2020.

Hamptons International organise a number of stalls in the festival, which this year will be raising money for the YMCA North London’s work with vulnerable young members of our community. The Hamptons team will again be using the music stage to announce the winners of our hugely popular raffle.

To help support this worthy cause, please drop in to one of our branches and purchase a raffle ticket or come along on the day and enjoy the fun on offer.
