Here at Challenger Mobile Communications we’ve been having a little fun around the office of late and all the while supporting a very worthy cause that is close to our hearts.

A range of events have been hosted at Challenger HQ over recent weeks in support of When You Wish Upon A Star, a Nottingham based charity that grants the wishes of children living with life-threatening illness.

Raising funds with a smile

Charitable events were organised by members of the Challenger team that included a bowling night, meal out, a raffle and a fancy-dress charity day, with the entire Challenger team getting into the spirit of things. Once the Where’s Wally outfits, wigs and Tutus were tucked safely away, the total figure raised was revealed to be a whopping £492. What’s more, thanks to a generous donation from our friends at Coda Investments, this was then rounded up to an even £1,000.

Jeff Eamens, Director at Challenger, presented a cheque to a representative of When You Wish Upon A Star and commented:

“To be able to support such a worthy cause through events such as these really is a no-brainer. Sadly, it’s likely that we all know someone that could benefit from the amazing and tireless efforts of the team at When You Wish Upon A Star. I hope that we have helped play some small part in their ongoing efforts to grant the wishes of some very deserving children.”

Giving something back

These are the latest in a steady stream of charitable activities organised by the Challenger team, with support given to numerous charities throughout the year through Christmas jumper days, desk decorating, bake offs and more. Benefitting charities range from Save the Children to the Motor Neurone Disease Association

Jeff Eamens concludes;

“Giving something back to local and national causes is an idea that we hold dear, and we encourage members of our team to nominate worthy causes for which we could raise funds on an ongoing basis.”

A little about When You Wish Upon A Star

When You Wish Upon a Star was founded in Nottingham by Barbara White in 1990 and has granted over 17,500 wishes across the UK to date.

Some children wish to be a fairy princess or soldier for the day, meet celebrities or sporting heroes that range from the Red Arrows to Mary Berry and others wish for a laptop to keep in contact with their friends and family whilst in hospital.

The charity also organises a number of days out and treats for children throughout the year, and every December it enables hundreds of children to swap hospital beds for sleigh rides transporting them away from appointments, treatments and injections to the winter wonderland of Lapland on board our Santa Express flights.
