Our founder Hugh Green, passed away on July 13th, 2012 at his Mt Albert home.
We mourn the loss of this inspirational man, but in turn celebrate the legacy he has left behind. Hugh was a spirited and generous Irishman who always worked hard right up until his last days, he will be greatly missed as the driving force behind all of our charitable works.
His vision will live on in The Hugh Green Foundation, the successful Hugh Green Group of companies and his large Family.
"May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind always be at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
and rains fall soft upon your garden.
And untill we meet again.
May God hold you in the palm of his hand."
You may leave your memories of Hugh and condolences for his family at the online guestbook below:
