We are delighted to announce that the Inspire Business Awards Charity Partner for 2016 is Challengers.
Much needed funds will be raised for this great charity at the awards dinner in November.
Challengers is a charity that provides play and leisure opportunities for disabled children aged 2-25 across Surrey and Hampshire. Play has a fundamental impact on a child’s healthy growth and development, however, research has found that even today, 84% of families with disabled children are going without regular access to play. Challengers makes it possible for any child, with any impairment, to access essential play opportunities, helping them to develop vital skills such as co-ordination, confidence and communication, all whilst having fun, making friends and challenging their impairment.
Their work also provides an essential short break to families who are often exhausted from the demands of caring, so that they can recharge and have a chance to do activities that other families take for granted, such as spend time with other children or clean the house. Families often describe Challengers as a lifeline and say that without such support family life would be likely to break down.
