This past weekend has seen several members of the team from Avian and Blue2 take on the 2.6 challenge. Seeing them running, walking, hedge cutting and baking in multiples of 2.6 or 26 to raise a total of £430 for our chosen charity.
The 2.6 challenge was set up in an attempt to help charities across the UK make up the losses of huge fundraising events, like the London Marathon, being cancelled due to the current pandemic. Many charities across the country have had to reduce or stop services due to this unprecedented time, when vulnerable members of the public need them most; Sadly, many charities will not survive the next few months.
With this in mind we chose to support The Charities Aid Foundation (CAF) when taking on the 2.6 challenge. They have just released a Coronavirus Emergency Fund which concentrates on helping small charities and other charitable organisations affected by the impact of Covid-19, and offers them one-time grants of up to £10,000.
The list of the team that took part is below:
