Join us on Sunday 26th April 2020 to raise vital funds and help save the UK's charities
The Covid-19 pandemic has had a catastrophic effect with the cancellation of many events and loss of tens of thousands of pounds of income for us and many other charities.
Every 2.6 minutes another person dies from meningitis somewhere in the world and so that’s why we are joining the nationwide '2.6 Challenge' and asking our supporters to take part to raise life-saving funds for Meningitis Research Foundation at this crucial time.
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 £26. 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!
