History of hard work

Return to news & stories Return to news & stories

Greg started as a supported employee with Challenge Community Services in 1984, 33 years ago.  At that time he worked in the sheltered workshop called Sheltam, where he would roll string for the abattoirs and pack sachets for KFC. He then transferred to Wirraway St where he learned new woodworking skills building dog kennels, tables, surveyor pegs, and constructing pallets as well as packing newspaper and catalogues for The Tamworth Times. He has also held positions within our ironing, sewing and laundry services.

Greg has a variety of skills and has worked really hard during his time with Business Services. Cleaning was Greg’s next challenge taking on this task up at Carthage Street and other Challenge sites.  Many of you may have seen Greg’s face around head office, cleaning, shining and making everything sparkling clean.  Greg is an enthusiastic employee who always has a smile, is very polite and well-mannered.

Over the years, Greg has worked within many of Challenge’s Business Services and continues to spread his skills around. Currently, he works at both Secure Scanning Solutions and Tamworth Recycling.  Greg started off in the Spare Hands Crew mowing lawns, whipper snipping, and even washing cars at the hospital.  He then moved into the scanning and packing room where he has gained even more skills. 

Greg loves collating and has a great eye for detail watching for any stray items that may go through our scanners. We have great trust in Greg. Over the years he has shown us loyalty, honesty and integrity. These are three great traits within Greg’s character. Thank you Greg, for all you have done and continue to do.

About Challenge Community Services

Over 60 years ago we were a small band of parents and friends seeking support services for our children with disability. Today, Challenge has grown to be one of the largest community support services in New South Wales. We provide support to over 2500 people from Albury to Lismore, Sydney, Dubbo, Tamworth and beyond. With over 880 staff, 95 of which have a disability, we strive to comply with and exceed all standards required under State and Federal Acts.
In the spirit of Reconciliation, Challenge Community Services acknowledges Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples as the Traditional Owners and Custodians of this country, and their connection to land, water and community. We pay our respect to them, their cultures and customs, and to Elders both past and present.
