The Covid-19 pandemic has had a catastrophic effect with the cancellation of thousands of events and the loss of billions in income through fundraising events.

The Virgin Money London Marathon alone is the world’s biggest one-day fundraising event, raised more than £66.4 million for thousands of charities in 2019. From Sunday 26 April, the day when the Virgin Money London Marathon would have taken place, join the rest of the UK for The 2.6  Challenge.

The 2.6 Challenge can be any activity you like – from running 2.6 miles to holding an online workout with 26 of your friends. Whatever your age or ability, you can take part. After all, we’re not looking for superheroes. We’re looking for Home Heroes.

Everyone has been affected by Covid-19. But for people who are already struggling, things have become even harder. Many of our carers are at breaking point, they need us now more than ever.

We have had to replace face to face appointments with phone and video calls, but we are still here to make sure carers get the support they deserve. The helpline is still open. Expert staff are still on the end of the phone for emotional support, benefits advice and health reviews. Counsellors still lend a listening ear. We’re still here for carers, but we need your support.

Take on The 2.6 Challenge by donating or fundraising through JustGiving.
