You can join the Home Heroes of UK on Sunday 26 April 2020 to fundraise or donate to charities across the country by taking part in the 2.6 Challenge.
Many of these charities, like ours, have had to reduce or stop services at a time when vulnerable members of society need them most; thousands of staff across the country have been placed on furlough and many charities will not survive the next few months.
The Virgin Money London Marathon alone, which should have taken place on Sunday 26 April, is the world’s biggest one-day fundraising event, which raised more than £66.4 million for thousands of charities in 2019.
The Covid-19 pandemic has had a catastrophic effect with the cancellation of thousands of events and the loss of billions in income through fundraising events.
How to Get Involved
