Fundraising ideas

We’re inviting you, your family and friends to take part in The 2.6 Challenge from Sunday 26 April to support our work and help to save the UK’s charities.

The Covid-19 pandemic has had a devastating effect on charities, with the loss of billions in fundraising income.

In response, the organisers of the biggest mass-participation sports events across the country have come together to create a new campaign to raise vital funds to help to save the UK’s charities.

The 2.6 Challenge will launch on Sunday 26 April – what should have been the date of the 40th London Marathon, the world’s biggest one-day annual fundraising event.

We’re asking you to take part in an activity of your choice based around the numbers 2.6 or 26 and fundraise or donate to support Tiyeni as part of the campaign via Virgin Money or by searching for Tiyeni with JustGiving.

Please help us by raising vital funds that will directly translate to hope for our beneficiaries who are vulnerable and most at risk from this pandemic.

People of all ages are taking on The 2.6 Challenge with a host of activities – from walking, running or cycling 2.6 miles, juggling for 2.6 minutes, to holding online workouts with 26 friends. The ideas and options are endless!

The only requirement is that you must follow Government guidelines on exercise and social distancing. Most people are taking part from Sunday 26 April but you can do your activity whenever is most convenient for you.

There are just five simple steps to take:

  1. Dream up your 2.6 challenge – if you need help there are lots of ideas here
  2. Head to twopointsixchallenge.co.uk to donate £26 – or whatever you can afford ­– to [name of charity] or to set up a fundraising page
  3. Ask all your friends and family to sponsor you and challenge them to do their own 2.6 Challenge
  4. Complete your challenge
  5. Share a photo or video of your challenge on social media with #TwoPointSixChallenge

For further information on The 2.6 Challenge, including a list of partners and supporters, and for more ideas about what your activity could be, visit twopointsixchallenge.co.uk.

This is a difficult time for everyone. We know we can get through this, but only with your help and support. Donations can be made as part of the campaign by typing in Tiyeni here.

Thank you
