    Gift in kind: A practical and valuable way of working with us

    Supporting Challengers with gifts in kind can be a practical and valuable way of working with us.

    In kind support from companies can be in the form of fundraising gifts or prizes as well as products or professional services that can be used towards the running of our schemes or the organisation of the charity.

  • Payroll Giving
    Payroll Giving: A simple way of engaging your employees

    Running a payroll giving promotion for Challengers in your workplace is a simple and effective way of engaging your employees and promoting our work.

    Your staff are able to benefit from tax efficient giving, Challengers benefits from a sustainable source of income and your company benefits by demonstrating its commitment to supporting a local cause.

    Payroll giving is a tax efficient scheme that allows you to make regular donations to Challengers straight from your salary. As your donation is taken out before tax, it costs you less to give us more.

    For example a £10 donation will actually only cost you £8 if pay tax at the basic rate of 20% and £6 if you are a 40% tax payer.

    You can donate any amount to us and stop your donation whenever you like.

It’s an amazing place, the people are wonderful, your child will love it and you’ll have some respite as well
