Help Save UK Charities: Join B7s in taking on the 2.6 Challenge

With an estimated loss of £4 billion in income as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic the UK Charity sector needs our help. So the UK’s event industry has stepped-up together to create The 2.6 Challenge, a nationwide fundraising campaign to save our charities.

Many charities have had to reduce or stop services at a time when vulnerable members of society need them most; thousands of staff have been placed on furlough and many charities will not survive the next few months.

So we’re encouraging our amazing B7s community to help by joining us in completing the 2.6 Challenge to save UK Charities.

We have partnered with 2 incredible charities for 2020, and intend to donate our 2.6 Challenge funds to both. Dorset Mind and Wooden Spoon do very important work, and it would be great to see the B7s community get behind them in force. Please consider them when selecting your chosen charity and do your bit to keep them going!

How can I get involved?

No need to be a marathon runner to take part – this is a challenge for all ages and abilities. Just get thinking of an activity based around the numbers 26 or 2.6 and complete it on or from Sunday April 26.

It could be something as simple as running 2.6 miles, 26 minutes of yoga, or juggling for 26 minutes – or on second thoughts, maybe just 2.6 minutes! Click here for some more inspiration.

Whether you’re doing 26 laps of your house, 26 press-ups with the dog on your back or bench-pressing your child 26 times, we want your help to save the UK’s charities.

Help to inspire the nation by sharing pictures or videos of your challenge on social media using the official hashtag #TwoPointSixChallenge!
