Business Community

We are delighted to be working in partnership with City based Insuretech. They are supporting the work of Croydon Children's University and we are developing some new exciting programmes. In the mean time the team at Charles Taylor have been raising money through a number of schemes, including bake sales and scavenger hunts.

In October a number of staff have signed up to The Royal Parks Half Marathon and raising money for Croydon Children's University. A big thank you to you all.

If you would like to support them please give them a boost by making a donation today.

Race day: Sunday 8 October 2017 - 09.00am.

This stunning central London half marathon, takes in the capital's world-famous landmarks on closed roads, and four of London's eight Royal Parks - Hyde Park, The Green Park, St James's Park and Kensington Gardens.

The HIVE is delighted to announce that Croydon Children’s University is working in partnership With John Lewis at Home, in Croydon. We are running a pilot of their primary education programme ‘ Bringing Skills to Life’  to allow pupils to explore, imagine and create, whilst equipping them with many life skills . Through this education programme we aim to inspire children and develop their imagination and practical skills. The activities will be fun and delivered over the Summer holidays,  across the themes of Design & Make, Cook & Share and Storytelling.
