Riverford Organic Farmers Surrey: Our partnership over the years!

What’s the recipe for a perfect charity partnership?

We have just come to the end of another amazing fundraiser with our friends at Riverford Organic Farmers Surrey, so we wanted to shine a light on their amazing support over the last few years!

In February, Andy and Haley, who run the Surrey franchise of Riverford Organic Farmers, hosted an amazing raffle to support Challengers. They donated lots of delicious prizes to get the lucky winners through lockdown, including tasty fruit and veg boxes, meat boxes, Riverford vouchers and of course, wine!

Our original target for the event was £1,000, but with the support of so many people and Andy & Haley’s incredible work, it raised a staggering total of £8,780. With further match funding from our Chairman, this took the total to a whopping £13,170! Thank you to everyone that purchased a ticket. This amount could pay for 82 young people to enjoy our virtual activities from home!

In April 2020, Andy and Haley supported our COVID-19 Emergency Appeal and helped to beat the lockdown blues by hosting a virtual quiz night, complete with a raffle and live music! The event raised £11,300, which made an incredible difference during such a challenging time for the charity.

After pledging their support as members of the Challengers Business Club, in 2019 Riverford hosted a delicious live cookery demonstration in aid of the disabled young people we support. The event was hugely popular and raised a fantastic £1,375! Not to forget the delicious pasta parties they hosted for our London Marathon and Prudential RideLondon teams in 2019, filled with tasty organic recipes and treats.

Emily Blackley, Senior Community & Events Officer at Challengers said: “With every fundraiser they do, Andy, Haley and their loyal customers do everything they can to support us!

“We are so grateful for this partnership which continues to make such a difference to the lives of the disabled young people and families at Challengers. We look forward to lots more exciting fundraisers in the future!”

We’d like to say a huge thank you for all of their support over the years – you are Team Orange superstars!
