Why we need your help
Support PLUS as part of the UKs #twopointsixchallenge
You can donate your support to PLUS here - we would love 26 supporters to donate £26 - in support of all the crazy and fun initaitives are families and young people are getting involved!
The serious bit:
The organisers of the biggest mass participation fundraising events have come together to create a new campaign to raise vital funds for charities across the UK.
The Covid-19 pandemic has had a catastrophic effect. For charities, fundraising events have had to be cancelled across the country with a loss of billions in income through fundraising events.
PLUS is losing fundraising income and income from not delivering services and so we are delighted that the #twopointsixchallenge has been set up to help raise funds for PLUS and other charities across the UK.
The 2.6 challenge will take place on 26th April, the day the London Marathon should have been taking place. The goal is to raise £67.6M for charities across the UK in a day – making it the biggest fundraising event raising the most money in a single day. WOW!
If 2.6 million people donated £26 pound / fundraised £26 they would reach this total.
It is very simple to get involved and we are asking all our families, children and young people to get involved.
The idea is to do something around the numbers 2.6 – from running or cycling 2.6 miles to skipping for 26 minutes to reading 26 books to your children … literally anything.
We are going to suggest ideas each day in the lead up. IN fact we are going to suggest 26 ideas!
And we hope that we will have 26 of our families taking part, each fundraising £26.
Lots of celebrities and sports teams are signing up getting behind this event, making it hugely exciting and turning it into a wonderful community event.
However, if you cant take part and would just like to donate £26, or £2.60, or £260 - this is the page for you!
