The Rainy Day Trust has joined The 2.6 Challenge that has been set up to replace the London Marathon on 26 April as a fundraiser. Each year the London Marathon raises about £65 million for small and medium-sized charities. With the cancellation of this iconic event, the organisers have pulled together the #TwoPointSixChallenge. The aim is to get 2.6 million people raising at least £26 each from 26 April.
The event started on 26 Apr 20, lasting for five days and the Rainy Day Trust is asking for as many people as possible to do something daft with the numbers 2.6 or 26 as possible. This link shows how you can do anything, no matter how big or small to raise £26 or £260 and raise some badly needed money for the Rainy Day Trust.
As an additional benefit the Trust will receive a proportion of a central pot of money that is raised by the platforms of Virgin Money Giving and Just Giving. The more money raised by people on behalf of the Rainy day Trust, the more additional money the Trust will receive.
