The 2.6 Challenge is a simple and fun way for everyone to do their bit to help save the UKs charities.


Due to the global pandemic the big fundraising events like the London Marathon have been cancelled. These events are key to the survival of many charities including Helen House. We’ve been getting respite care from Helen House for nearly 6 years and we couldn’t survive without them. Over the last few weeks we’ve all suffered from symptoms of Coronavirus, which led to a very scary day for all of us when Toby had multiple seizures due to a high temperature. Having been advised not to go to hospital we relied on the doctors at Helen House to provide medical advice and support. We would have been lost without them. To show his appreciation for all the help we get, Toby wanted to take on some challenges to raise much needed funds.

The challenges include:

- Walking 26 metres

- Climbing the stairs 26 times

- Throwing 26 balls

Toby would be so grateful if you could sponsor him. These are all big challenges for Toby. We will attempt each in one day but it may take a big longer and quite a lot of support, but together we’re going to do it for Helen House.

Thanks in advance
