The 2.6 Challenge

Calling all home heroes!

As you are well aware, many fundraising events in the UK have been postponed or cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic. Whilst we are all hopeful many of these will still go ahead later in the year, we’ve been left struggling to maintain our crucial services with reduced funding.

We’re calling on you to take on the challenge so together we can continue supporting our community and their families. Join the nation in this challenge on Sunday 26 April, which would have been the London Marathon. The challenge will be open after 26 April if you can’t do it on this day! more
