A nation-wide fundraising initiative aimed at supporting charities across the country launched today and offers you a great way to get fundraising for us.

With many fundraising events currently postponed, The 2.6 Challenge is taking place on 26 April, the original date of the London Marathon. You can take up the 2.6 Challenge in any way you choose.  How about running 2.6 km in your garden, skipping through a hula hoop 26 times, dancing your socks off for 26 minutes, or baking 26 perfect cup cakes?

Let your imagination run wild and be as creative as you can – any money you raise will go towards supporting us at this unprecedented time for our NHS.
