A Challengers transformation at Bellfields Youth Centre

Award-winning architecture and design practice Scott Brownrigg joined with Challengers to transform the Bellfields Youthcentre in Hazel Avenue, Guildford. Over one weekend, Scott Brownrigg’s Guildford office gathered 30 volunteers to completely makeover the centre. Over 400 combined hours of work were completed over the weekend and a huge amount of work was put in beforehand in order to prepare designs and get everything ready.

On Friday 24th March, representatives from Challengers and Scott Brownrigg met at the newly refurbished Bellfields centre to see all of the work that had been put into the building. The works included newly painted walls, new flooring, colourful wall art and a bright wall stencil in the entrance to make it bright and welcoming.

Challengers are a charity that provide play and leisure schemes for disabled children and young people across Surrey, Hampshire and the surrounding areas. Challengers Guildford Youthscheme runs from the Bellfields Community Centre on Tuesday evenings, Saturdays, half terms and Easter and summer holidays with loads of activities including; Chessington World of Adventures, music workshops, crazy golf, sports days and so much more.

Scott Brownrigg has been involved with many charity partnerships in previous years, and Challengers were thrilled to work with them on such a fantastic project. Susie Jewell, Corporate Partnerships Manager at Challengers said: “We are overwhelmed with the transformation that has happened here. We cannot thank Scott Brownrigg enough for all of their hard work to make this space special for the young people that use it.”

“Scott Brownrigg is committed to giving back to the community, and over the years its UK and International offices have supported a number of charities through charity fundraising activities. More recently our support has taken the form of each office working on a community project. Our work for Challengers has not only been rewarding for those volunteers from the Guildford office that took part, but also in seeing the direct result it has had on those who work and visit Bellfields Youthcentre. We are delighted they are so pleased with the result and we look forward to further developing our relationship with them in the future.”
