London Olympia gains green thumb in regeneration project

London conference and exhibition centre Olympia has teamed up with a local community group to help improve the nearby Marcus Garvey Park, spearheading the proposed regeneration of the area in 2014.
 
The project will see 1,000 daffodil and 1,000 crocus bulbs planted in the west London park by local school children.
 
“The Olympia team is proud of its strong links with the local community,” said Olympia Halls Director, Gillian Kiamil. “By assisting valuable causes such as these we feel that we are able to give something back to our local community. We very much look forward to seeing the results of the project early next year.”
 
Earls Court and Olympia have donated in excess of £200,000 to local charities since 2002.
 
“We are delighted that Olympia London is involved with our community project and are very grateful for their generous donation,” said Sean Adamson, Project Leader. “Many local residents see Marcus Garvey Park as their ’back garden’ and so to have the opportunity to dramatically improve the site will mean a lot to those that visit on a regular basis.”
 
It is estimated the regeneration project will cost £50,000.
