A fun way for everyone to do their bit

The UK charity sector estimates it will lose £4 billion in income as a result of the pandemic (source: National Council of Voluntary Organisations CEO Karl Wilding).

With hundreds of events postponed due to the pandemic, thousands of charities have had to reduce or stop services at a time when vulnerable members of society need them most.

The 2.6 Challenge is a simple way for people of all ages and abilities to help save the UK’s charities from Sunday 26 April. Your challenge could be as simple as pledging to run 2.6 miles as your daily exercise to doing 26 minutes of juggling non-stop.
