2-6 Challenge for Lollipop

Why we need your help

Hello! Welcome to Lollipop York's fundraising and donation page for the 2.6 Challenge!

As a result of the coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic, Lollipop has had to cancel all our sessions and activities for the next few months. In addition, all of our fundraising events for the next 6 months have also, understandably, been cancelled. We know we’re not alone – charities across the UK are losing billions of pounds in fundraising income over the next 6 months and the 2.6 challenge is a great way to support charities that are close to your heart.


What is the 2.6 Challenge?

The idea of the 2.6 challenge is to take part in an activity of your choice, based around the numbers 2.6 or 26, and fundraise or donate to support Lollipop. You can be as creative as you like with your activity! People all across the UK will be taking part. Most people are taking part from Sunday 26 April, this is the day the challenge will launch as it should have been the day of the 40th London Marathon, but you can do your activity whenever works best for you.

It’s just really important to remember when taking part in the challenge that you must follow Government guidelines on exercise and social distancing.
