Challengers Star: May 2017

Challengers Star - May 2017

Since 1979, Challengers staff have been working hard to make sure children and young people have an awesome time at Challengers! Every month, we shine a light on one of our Challengers stars. This month it’s the turn of Pippa Barker (pictured above), who is one of our Corporate Fundraisers!

What do you do at Challengers?
I recently started as Challengers Corporate Fundraising Officer which involves creating new corporate supporters and maintaining existing corporate partnerships. Our corporate supporters are all amazing people and it’s inspiring to see businesses getting so involved with their local community.

What made you want to work at Challengers?
My cousin uses the Challengers Playscheme so I have been aware of the wonderful work that Challengers does for him for a while now. To be given the opportunity to raise funds and awareness of Challengers was something I wanted to get involved with and I could tell from the initial interview that the Challengers family was one I wanted to be a part of.

What is your favourite thing about working at Challengers?
I know that every day I go into the office I will be welcomed with a big smile and positive energy.

What keeps you up at night?
My excitement for breakfast.

How would you describe the Challengers team in three words?
Supportive, talented and enthusiastic.

Challengers to me is…
A place where everyone can be themselves.
