Take on the 2.6 Challenge and support the DofE Charity!

We’re calling on our supporters to become home heroes through the 2.6 Challenge by donating or fundraising for the DofE charity

Like thousands of other charities across the UK, the DofE will see its vital fundraising income hit by the coronavirus pandemic.

Young people are being disproportionally affected by the outbreak, and so our work is more important than ever.

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 £26 to help the DofE continue its important work in supporting young people.

Get involved

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 £26 to support the DofE. You could do 26 keepy-uppies, bake 26 cupcakes, run 2.6 miles, host a virtual quiz for 26 people and ask them to each donate £1 – the possibilities are endless.
 
To take part, follow these five steps:
1. Dream up your 2.6 Challenge (anything to do with the numbers 2.6 or 26)
2. Donate £26 to the DofE or set up your JustGiving page.
3. Ask your friends and family to sponsor you to do your challenge, if you’re doing the fundraising option
4. Complete your challenge and encourage others to do their own challenge
5. Share a photo or video of your challenge across social media using #TwoPointSixChallenge and #DofE so we can see your Challenge in all its glory!

Stay safe

All heroes in this coronavirus outbreak must stay at home and protect the NHS so please make sure your Challenge follows government guidelines in compliance with social distancing.
