Introduction

Greenstone Partners is a supporter of the following organisations, charities and events:

Byron Writers Festival 2016 and 2017

Greenstone Partners is proud to be a Major Partner of Byron Writers Festival again in 2017, as it celebrates 21 years of storytelling, debate, and big ideas. The Festival is renowned for its sense of community and treasured by those who attend. Its power lies in the evocative expression of real and imagined stories that strike chords and captivate because they are authentic, and are told by exceptional thinkers, writers and communicators.

John Safran, Hannah Kent, Jimmy Barnes, and Tony Jones are just some of the more than 130 writers and thinkers converging on the iconic coastal town of Byron Bay from 4-6 August 2017 to celebrate the Festival’s 21st Anniversary

Sculpture by the Sea
Marina DeBris

The sculpture, named “Aquarium of the Pacific Gyre”, displayed a giant glass case filled with parodies of sea life made from actual marine debris.  The objective of the sculpture was to draw viewers attention to the often overlooked problem of ocean pollution. Ideally, viewers will walk away aware of this growing problem and be provoked to take some action.

The “Aquarium of the Pacific Gyre” was displayed on the world famous Bondi Beach from 24 October 2013 to 10 November 2013.

Spinal Cord Injury Research
CatWalk Spinal Cord Injury Trust

The CatWalk Spinal Cord Injury Trust (the “CatWalk Trust”) was founded in 2005 by Catriona Williams, formerly one of New Zealand’s leading international equestrian riders.  Following a riding accident in 2002, Catriona is now a C6/C7 tetraplegic and confined to a wheelchair.  The CatWalk Trust is dedicated to raising funds to support the body of scientific opinion which says a cure for spinal cord injury will be found.  

Greenstone Partners was a major sponsor of the CatWalk’s Trust’s Big Cycle.  In July 2013, a team of Catwalk supporters, including Catriona Williams and Greenstone Partners’ Scott Malcolm, cycled over 1,000 kilometres from Lhasa, Tibet to Kathmandu, Nepal.  The route included the challenge of climbing ten Himalayan passes (of which five are over 5,000 metres in height); all in the name of cycling so others can walk.  The Big Cycle raised over NZ$600,000 for spinal cord injury research.  Greenstone Partners was a Peak Partner of the Big Cycle as sponsor of Everest Base Camp and Scott individually raised over NZ$200,000.

Further information on the Catwalk Trust can be found at www.catwalk.org.nz.
