Noel Jones also announced their new and exciting partnership with Challenge, a not-for-profit organisation that supports children and families living with cancer, 365 days a year.

The new charity partnership will play a significant role in supporting the day-to-day delivery of services and help to provide various opportunities and experiences for families and children.

On the night, guests heard from David Rogers (Challenge CEO) who shared his gratitude for the partnership, explaining that Challenge relies on community support to provide their invaluable services to families affected by cancer, and with partnerships such as this providing crucial funds.

Guests also heard from Xenia Alexander’s story, who at 15 years of age had her life changed forever when she was diagnosed with AML, a form of Leukemia. Xenia’s story was raw and emotional. The whole treatment process did not really agree with Xenia, as with most kids, and it took a toll on her both mentally and physically. To her credit, she battled through like the amazing person she is, to become an inspirational and passionate woman advocating for other young people living with cancer, as well as striving to be a role model for the community.

Over the years, Challenge has expanded from a valuable camping program to become the first organisation in Victoria to provide a range of ongoing support and recreational activities for families living with cancer.

In 2011, the organisation undertook its biggest project to date, opening the Challenge Family Centre. The Centre is a project driven by the voice of our families and is the perfect extension to complement the existing support offered by the organisation. The Centre provides a non-threatening space where families can come together and feel completely supported in their journey from the time of diagnosis, throughout the treatment period and beyond. The Centre is a one-stop shop for the non-medical needs of our members where they can access many different programs and services.

As part of Noel Jones ongoing commitment and support to Challenge, Noel Jones were also pleased to announce that they will be funding a new basketball court which is to be built at the Challenge Family Centre. Noel Jones mission is to be able to provide an outdoor space where children and their families can enjoy a game of basketball, feel inspired and empowered and have a little fun.

Along with funding the new basketball court, Noel Jones also announced a donation of $15,000 to Challenge, however on the night of the event, this amount was increased after Connor Pinnington (Noel Jones Novice Auctioneer winner) ran a live charity auction to generate additional funds for Challenge.

The item being auctioned was an incredible Deluxe King Package at Crown Towers and Gift Voucher. In the end they raised an additional $10,000 that will go straight towards Challenge, making the total amount donated by Noel Jones to Challenge an incredible $25,000.
