On Sunday 26th April, thousands of people from all over the world were due to congregate in London for an event that has raised record-breaking amount of money for hundreds of charities for 39 years – The London Marathon
Unfortunately, this couldn’t happen, but the fantastic organisers at London Marathon thought of a way to raise just as much money from the comfort and safety of our own homes – The 2.6 Challenge!
Households all over the UK were encouraged to come up with their own challenge based on the number 2.6 or 26, and raise some money for their chosen charity.
DENS were delights to have 6 groups take part in The 2.6 Challenge for us with some amazing challenges. Here is a rundownof our amazing supporters:
- Joe Dempsie who took on the challenge of only eating £2.60 worth of food for the day.
- Matilda and Florrie (& their dog Betsy!) who did 260 laps of their drive on roller-skates!
- Berkhamsted Chiropractic team who took part in a variety of different challenge
- Elaine, a key worker for the NHS Nightingale Hospital training team, who smashed her target of 26,200 on one of her shifts!
- And last but not least, Katy and Fran (+ the Books & Bottles Book Club) from the Fundraising Team
The challenge was a great success and in total raised £7,634.50.
This money will go a long way to help us to support vulnerable people in the community through this
So a big thank you to everyone who took part and everybody who kindly donated!
