Campaign by Marie Curie (RCN 207994 (England & Wales) and SC038731 (Scotland))
The 2.6 Challenge is a simple and fun way for everyone to do their bit to help save the UKs charities.


Save the UK's CharitiesGeneral fundraising has been hit very hard by the COVID-19 pandemic. Thousands of fundraising events have been cancelled and many charities, particularly smaller ones, are struggling to maintain services because of this huge reduction in income. This impacts all sectors of society from children to the elderly as well as the vital work in areas such as palliative care, serious diseases, mental health, housing support, food supplies and countless others that charities support.

As a charity, we do not have any outside funding because we have always managed to be self-sufficient. The companions who live here also work in the shop and our garden to keep us ticking over and we employ eight people to run the site, provide catering and to help with training and rehabilitation services, such as alcohol programmes.

Some of the people who arrive here are very vulnerable and unwell when they come off the streets and our aim is to help them turn their lives around. To lose this service would be a disaster.

The community have decided to get involved with the 2.6 challenge and 26 of our staff and companions will each be walking 26 miles from Monday 27th - Thursday 30th.

Please help our community continue to run and support our companions. Every amount will help!
