Fundraising Heroes of the Month: February 2020

Challengers Fundraising heroes in february

We’ve seen some fantastic fundraising this month! Here’s what some of our supporters have been doing to raise vital funds for Challengers.

Individual – Brogan & Marcus’ pancake fundraiser!
We couldn’t believe it was already time for Pancake Day…it just crêped up on us! To mark the occasion, our very own Trust Fundraisers, Brogan and Marcus sold pancakes to staff to raise money for Challengers. They are both braving the London Landmarks half marathon on the 29th March!

They raised an amazing £35, and you batter believe the pancakes were delicious! We look forward to cheering their names on race day.

Thank you Brogan and Marcus!

Community – Petersfield Ukelele Band
The Petersfield Ukelele Band have been supporting Challengers for almost a year now. Through local gigs and performances, they have raised over £800! They have performed at our Petersfield street collection, the Petersfield Community Choir Concert and the Christmas fair and Festival Hall in Petersfield. We are so grateful for their support and we love their music. Be sure to look them up!

Corporate – Exclusive Networks
This month, we received a cheque from Exclusive Networks totalling all of the amazing fundraising they did for us in 2019! They raised an incredible £6209.49 through lots of exciting activities!

Throughout the year they organised dress down days, raffles, Mario Kart competitions, bake sales and more, as well as 13 members of staff bravely abseiling down the Guildford Cathedral last June! They also generously donated a football table to our Alton Play scheme, providing lots of fun and excitement for the children.

Thanks to these amazing fundraising efforts, £6209.49 could pay for 41 days of play for one child at our fun-filled schemes, thank you so much Exclusive Networks for your incredible support in 2019!
