The 2.6 Challenge – Thank You!

The 2.6 Challenge - Thank You!

We want to share a huge thank you to our home heroes who took part in the 2.6 Challenge and to everyone who donated to Love, Amelia.  Our target of raising £260 was quickly met and in total a fantastic £548 was raised!  This is an amazing amount raised.

We have been able use the funds to purchase new items for families we support including pyjamas, vests and lots of brand new underwear – our local children are going to feel PANT-tastic! 

 

You can still donate to our JustGiving page and help us to continue to provide items to families.

Thank you again to everyone, you truly are amazing 

 

 

We are taking on the 2.6 Challenge

Are you up to a challenge? We’re inviting you, your family and friends to take part in The 2.6 Challenge from Sunday 26 April to help to save the UK’s charities.

The Covid-19 pandemic has had a devastating effect on charities, with the cancellation of thousands of events and the loss of billions in fundraising income.

In response, the organisers of the biggest mass-participation sports events across the country have come together to create a new campaign to raise vital funds to help to save the UK’s charities.

The 2.6 Challenge will launch on Sunday 26 April – what should have been the date of the 40th London Marathon, the world’s biggest one-day annual fundraising event.

We’re asking you to take part in an activity of your choice based around the numbers 2.6 or 26 and fundraise or donate to support Love, Amelia

People of all ages are taking on The 2.6 Challenge with a host of activities – from walking, running or cycling 2.6 miles, juggling for 2.6 minutes, to holding online workouts with 26 friends. The ideas and options are endless!

The only requirement is that you must follow Government guidelines on exercise and social distancing. Most people are taking part from Sunday 26 April but you can do your activity whenever is most convenient for you.

There are just five simple steps to take:

  1. Dream up your 2.6 challenge – if you need help there are lots of ideas here as well as some activities to help you prepare for your challenge 
  2. Head to www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/loveamelia to donate £26 – or whatever you can afford – or to set up a fundraising page
  3. Ask all your friends and family to sponsor you and challenge them to do their own 2.6 Challenge
  4. Complete your challenge
  5. Share a photo or video of your challenge on social media with #TwoPointSixChallenge

We hope you’ll join the nation in The 2.6 Challenge to support  Love, Amelia and help to save the UK’s charities.
