Be An At Home Hero & Take On The 2.6 Challenge

Become an at home hero for Bendrigg Trust 

With only a few days to go before the #TwoPointSixChallenge really gets going, here’s a simple guide for how you can get involved!

 

 


What is the 2.6 challenge?

Sunday 26 April, would have been the 40th year of the London Marathon, which in it’s history has seen over £1 billion being raised for good causes.

Due to the Covid 19 Pandemic, the London Marathon, as well as other mass participation events, have been postponed resulting in many charities, including Bendrigg, loosing out on much needed fund raised income.

The #TwoPointSixChallenge is a way of bringing the nation together to support UK charities by inviting supporters, such as yourselves, to come up with their own challenge incorporating the numbers 2 & 6, to help raise much needed funds.

People can do whatever they wish, as long as they adhere to the Government social distancing guidelines.
