Alumni Events

The Challenge is really excited about all of the Alumni Events that have been taking place across the country, keep reading to hear all about what has been going on this April….


On Saturday April 2nd and Sunday April 3rd, The Challenge Staff and 17 Challenge Alumni spent the weekend redecorating two rooms in a Catford based community nursery. We painted the walls and did a brilliant kids mural for Faith Montessori Nursery, who offer high quality and affordable child services to disadvantaged families.


  On 14th April, The Challenge Staff and 20 Challenge Alumni helped HAFAD (Hammersmith and Fulham Action on Disability) to deliver a Sports Day for 50 young disabled people. We had a really fun and relxed afternoon playing football, rounders and boccia (a Paralympic sport) and for the less sports inclined, one of our alumni even did some people’s nails! The charity promotes equality for disabled people and runs high quality services and campaigns


 On 19th April the Birmingham Alumni painted some fantastic signs to help raise awareness of a small Mosely charity called Four Seasons Garden project. Four Seasons is a social services garden project that offers many volunteer placements to people with learning disabilities. They rely on the funds from plant sales to keep going, so the signs we’ve painted to put up around their site will really help to make a difference in their local community.


The charities have all been incredibly grateful of the work our Alumni and staff have done so far. We’ve all learnt a lot and these events really help to strengthen relationships with the charities and within communities.

We’re really looking forwards to working with them all again this summer, but we’d just like to say a special Thank You to our Challenge Alumni who have been involved.
