Save your Charity – join in the 2.6 Challenge!

We Need You!

From 26th April the 2.6 challenge is inviting you to set your own personal two-six fundraising challenge. This could be running 26 laps of your garden, painting 26 pictures, creating a made-to-measure couture outfit from 26 pairs of socks, hopping for 2.6 minutes (and repeating 26 times), singing for 26 minutes on a video call with 26 friends or any number (perhaps 260?!) of other ideas. Be as creative as you can and you’ll be raising vital funds for us and other charities across the UK.

What a coincidence! It is also 26 years since the Somerville Foundation (originally known as GUCH PA) was first registered as a charity!

We receive no government funding and rely solely on donations. During the current crisis all fundraising events have ceased and we have had to reduce staff and services in order to survive.

The 2.6 challenge is an opportunity for everyone to get involved and play a part in ensuring The Somerville Foundation is here to support young people and adults born with a heart condition far into the future.

Please share your ideas/pics on our social media channels:
