CLEAR and the 2.6 Challenge
A new national campaign - the 2.6 Challenge - has been created by the organisers of the London Marathon and other mass participation events to raise vital funds to help to UK’s charities.
Like all charities, the Covid-19 pandemic has had a significant impact on CLEAR’s fundraising income. So if you or your family or friends would like to take part in the 2.6 Challenge on our behalf, we’d love to hear from you.
The 2.6 Challenge will launch on Sunday 26 April – what should have been the date of the 40th London Marathon. To take part just think of a challenge involving the numbers 2.6 or 26, for example, you could walk up and down your stairs 26 times, bake 26 cupcakes or flapjacks, or knit* or crochet a 2.6 metre scarf – the opportunities are endless! In these strange times just make sure you stick to Government guidelines on exercise and social distancing.
You can set up a fundraising page or make a one-off donation via the www.twopointsixchallenge.co.uk website and select the ‘fundraise now’ button on the left hand column of the page and select CLEAR as your chosen charity in either Just Giving or Virgin Money Giving.
Alternatively visit our fundraising page www.clearsupport.net/donate or our #OnaCLEARday page www.clearsupport.net/mission/onaclearday for other ways to support us.
Every penny will help us to help children and adults affected by abuse. Thank-you!
* Our Chief Executive, Carolyn Webster, has set herself a challenge of knitting a 2.4 metre scarf, with a chance to win the scarf! – her Just Giving page is here: www.justgiving.com/fundraising/carolyn-s-2-6-challenge
