Join the rest of the nation in the 2.6 Challenge and help to save your local NAWT.
Created by an initiative called ‘Save The UK’s Charities’ the 2.6 Challenge calls on people of all ages and abilities to complete an activity based around the numbers 26 or 2.6 on or from 26th April 2020.
Even if you’re not able to get out of your home right now, you can still take part!
Simply choose your challenge – it can be anything at all related to the number 2.6 or 26! Then set up your fundraising page here and ask your friends to sponsor you.
We’d love to see videos of your challenges – please tag us on social media and use the hash tag #TwoPointSixChallenge. You can tag us on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram.
