"When it came to choosing the right challenge organisation to work with, it was VITAL for The Body Shop Foundation to find a highly professional, experienced group to work with.  Challenge Charity is exactly that. 

From the minute we started;  the advice, help and support given at every step has been exceptional.  And its the little things that count - the level of attention with the website for members, the updates and emails from group leaders and doctors to reassure our trekkers.  All these small but vital drops of encouragement, helped, aided and reassured all those fundraising like mad to complete the trek, all for WaterAid. 

Special praise must be given to the team on the trek itself who went out of their way to make the trek as smooth as possible so our trekkers could focus on the challenge itself.  We simply can't thank everyone at Charity Challenge enough for their part in making our event such a success.  We simply can not wait for the next one; here's to the next incredible adventure for The Body Shop Foundation and Charity Challenge!"

“We had the best time in Peru. From the moment we were greeted at the airport we were so well looked after.  Everything from the tents, the food and the kit was brilliant.  We would definitely encourage anybody to sign up for one of Breast Cancer Care’s treks which are organised by Charity Challenge.  You will be safe in the knowledge that every aspect of your trip will be organised with immense care and precision.”

“Charity Challenge organized and led our VSO trek to the top of Kilimanjaro. The organization and execution was faultless – every aspect of the trip was anticipated and planned meticulously from the point of committing to undertaking the challenge 10 months before departure to boarding the flight home. Our trek leader, Raj Bhasin and medic, Daz Jones were consummate professionals and it was clear from the outset their prime objective was for the health, wellbeing and success of our individual and team endeavours. Everyone from Charity Challenge possessed an infectious passion for the challenge in hand and this translated to a great team atmosphere not limited to the trekkers but extending to the porters and support staff. This really was a great experience and I wouldn’t hesitate to participate in a trek organized by Charity Challenge in the future

I strongly feel that communitychallenge share our concerns and commitment to the wellbeing of Serco people.

"communitychallenge provides a terrific way for companies to respond to employees’ requests to give more than money in terms of their time, talent, expertise and energy in response to disasters around the world. Participating in communitychallenge can provide enormous personal and professional development opportunities for employees.  But equally importantly it can completely transform their perceptions of the countries, challenges and opportunities facing the communities they visit."

“The event went really well and all 24 CA staff completed the challenge.  The expedition leaders were excellent and took care of us brilliantly from the moment they picked us up at Glasgow airport until we left the hotel on Monday morning so please pass on our heartfelt thanks to them.”

"Individuals from across the globe became a highly motivated, focussed and inclusive work group. Months after returning, they still think, communicate and act as a team."

Dominic Harrison

Dominic Harrison, CEO Gala Coral Group

Gala Coral Group benefited enormously from the team trek to Everest Base Camp.  The trek provided a positive focal point for all our staff, and has created strong relationships across our business divisions.

Additionally, the trek, and Gala’s ‘World’s highest game of bingo’ generated very positive news coverage for the Group providing a fun and positive profile, whilst also reinforcing our charitable aims and our support of Sue Ryder Care.

I would have no hesitation in recommending a charity challenge to other companies who are looking for team building opportunities, and positive profiling of their company.

"After many years of running typical corporate hospitality for our client base and supply chain, whilst visiting various sporting events, our factories and manufacturing plants in Scotland and the far East, Mitsubishi Electric decided to take a new approach to teambuilding and networking.  We've launched a series of charity challenge events to Peru, Vietnam, Cambodia and now India!

We engaged our clients to join us on this incredible journey rather than a traditional Corporate Hospitality event. By participating, they bought into our vision of doing something physically demanding yet totally fulfilling. This entailed not only considerable fitness training, but raising vital funds for a worthwhile cause.

Having completed three of the challenges myself, I can honestly say we have never engaged our client base and supply chain in a more beneficial and positive way. The results are incredible. We have raised over $250,000 for Save the Children and we're aiming to set the bar even higher and raise another $170,000 on our up and coming challenge to India. To have raised around $420,000 for such a worthy cause is something that we can all be incredible proud of.

 As a result of this, we've developed much stronger ties from a business perspective to those clients who have participated in these challenges and we can see the commercial benefits to our on-going business.

I would wholeheartedly encourage any business to consider the benefits of such challenges for their own company."
