Home What’s going on Partnerships

Find out more about just some of our inspiring partnerships that are making a difference locally.

We are extremely proud and grateful to have such strong partnerships with a variety of organisations who share our vision of living in a world where all children and young people can play together, freely.

Kelly’s Storage are long standing supporters of Challengers and we are incredibly grateful for all that they do for us. Each year, they hold two flagship sporting events, which attract hundreds of participants who help raise vital funds and awareness for our work. On top of this, Kelly’s staff are actively involved throughout the year and go the extra mile to support our work. Kelly’s are also members of our Business Club which meets quarterly for networking opportunities with local businesses.

Each year Simply Health donate 10% of their profits to charity and last year Challengers were lucky enough to have been one of the beneficiaries of this scheme. Their incredibly generous donation has allowed us to expand our Young Adults transition programme which helps young people leaving Challengers transition safely and sustainably into adult services.

We are so grateful for our relationship with the Farnham Lions, they have been great friends for over 10 years supporting our Farnham Play Centre and Youth Centre. We would not be able support local disabled children, young people and their families without the Farnham Lions continued support.

Whether it is collecting at the Surrey Half Marathon, holding a fantastic quiz or volunteering with car parking at our Kelly’s Cross Country Challenge in October, the members of the Rotary Club of Guildford District are incredible in their support of Challengers. We are so thankful for their continued support of our Guildford Schemes.

We are hugely grateful to Children in Need for generously supporting our Guildford Playscheme through funding the post of our Play Leader. It is thanks to the funding from Children in Need that our Play Leader can support disabled children to make friends, challenge their impairments and have fun!

Challengers has been fortunate to receive support from St Teresa’s School in Effingham since 2013. Thousands of pounds has been raised by staff, students and parents in a multitude of ways including cake sales and mufti days to even a coffee and cake ‘drive thru’ at pick up time. We also have the pleasure of visiting the school annually to host disability awareness workshops and most recently, Year 10 Student Fabienne Bellamy was honoured with a Diana Inspire Award for her dedication to fundraising for Challengers at St Teresa’s.
