Thank you to everyone that has donated to, or taken part in the 2.6 Challenge so far.

Your support helps get people with disabilities the vital technology they need to keep in touch with their family and friends during the Covid-19 lockdown.

A team effort to beat isolation

The 2.6 Challenge launched on what should have been the date of this year’s London Marathon – Sunday 26 April.

We’d like to say a special thank you to the team of 26 people we support from across the south west who have taken up this marathon challenge.

Students from our specialist college have teamed up with people we support through our well-being and supported living services.

They are running, walking, cycling or skipping 1 mile each to reach their team target of 26 miles, and aim to raise at least £260 for communications technology to keep people connected.

Help us keep people connected

The coronavirus lockdown has a huge impact on each and every one of us. Being unable to see family and friends face to face has a major impact on people’s mental health.

For people with disabilities and mental health support needs, changes to every aspect of day to day life can also increase anxiety and loneliness.

Unfortunately, not everyone we support has access to tablets and mobile phones, to help them stay in touch with their friends, families and support during lockdown.

But you can change that! The challenge isn't over yet.

Help us raise money to get people the technology they need – donate or challenge yourself today.
