Staff and students have been completing their 2.6 Challenges over the past few weeks and we need a final push to reach our target! The #TwoPointSixChallenge was devised as a UK wide campaign to support charities’ fundraising efforts after they lost a huge part of their fundraising income when the London Marathon was postponed.
Please help us to get us over the line – complete your 2.6 Challenge and/or donate to achieve our goal! All proceeds are going to our long term local charity Evelina Children’s Hospital and Head of Sport Sean’s chosen charity Teenage Cancer Trust – Donate via this link https://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/spg2020
We have also received a special thank you message from the Evelina fundraising team:
Thank you so much for taking part in the 2.6K Challenge for Evelina London! We couldn’t appreciate your support more during this time and all funds raised will support our coronavirus appeal and our hospital staff during this time. We really appreciate you going to such lengths to raise vital funds for the hospital especially during this time! This is no ordinary time for Guy’s and St Thomas’. The extraordinary team of staff are pulling together like never before to care for patients and loved ones, and to keep the hospitals clean and safe. And with your support, we will stand with them to help #KeepUsAllGoing.
It’s been very entertaining to see how creative everyone has been – you can watch the submitted videos on the DLD YouTube Channel here and photos of challenges completed below. At the time of writing we have reached 80% of our target of £260.00.
