Champion Group supports Ark Cancer Centre Charity

The Champion Group are delighted to announce that our Charity of the Year for 2018 is ........... Ark Cancer Centre Charity.

A much-needed cancer treatment centre is to be built by Hampshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust in north Hampshire (Basingstoke), integrating conventional and supportive cancer care for local people. Everything will be provided under one roof in an uplifting environment that will enhance the care and support that is given.

Ark Cancer Centre Charity is raising £5 million towards the cancer treatment centre. This exciting project is a major opportunity for everyone involved to create a centre of excellence that will benefit so many people in the locality.

The Champion Group staff have already contributed to the £1.7 million raised so far by participating in London to Brighton in 2016 and Ark to arc in 2017. We look to build on this with regular fund raising events throughout 2018.

More news of the Champion Group fund raising events will follow in due course, in the meantime, please follow them on Twitter @Ark_Charity or like them on Facebook Ark Cancer Centre Charity for regular updates

New Head Office Development

After a long and (at times) painful process of due dillgence on the build design for our new offices we were delighted to commence works on the erection of the steel frame structure today! 

With works being undertaken by Southampton based firm Hillcrest we are now well underway on a project which will take us up to the Christmas break erecting the impressive structure which will be home to the Champion Group for many years. 

Local people will notice the structure going up around the Brighton Hill area and as you approach the site from the dual carriageway. 

With over 150 tonnes of steel involved in the frame you can imaging the size and scale of the job and the impressive nature of the program of works.

On a cloudy morning 4 of our very own joined a team of 36 Basingstoke riders on a charity mission! 

The Ark Riders left the Ark Conference Centre in Basingstoke destined for the Arc de Triumph in Paris on a gruelling 5 day cycle ride. 

The team of (left to right) Sam Champion (Bricklayer), Paul Kent (Senior Contracts Manager), Perry Champion (Director) and Kevin Croombs (Group Accountant) are part of the Ark Riders group who are raising money for the Ark Cancer Treatment Centre in Basingstoke.
