Calling all TASC supporters!

Take part in the 2.6 challenge and help raise pounds for our Frontline Heroes!

In light of restrictions imposed due to Coronavirus, many of our fundraising challenges have been cancelled or postponed. From Sunday 26th April, the day when the Virgin Money London Marathon would have taken place, join in The 2.6 Challenge and support TASC, The Ambulance Staff Charity.

We understand these are difficult times for everyone. The Coronavirus pandemic has moved us into unchartered territory as it affects all aspects of life. What we do know is that there are increasing pressures on the vital emergency services right now and it is having a serious impact upon the ambulance services and its staff.

Which is why we need your support.

Get involved

Take part in an activity of your choice based around the number 2.6 or 26 and fundraise or donate to support us. To get started, simply choose your #TwoPointSixChallenge and then head to the TwoPointSix website to donate or fundraise.

Encourage your friends and family to donate £2.60 or £26 or whatever they can!  By donating to your challenge, you’ll be providing emergency funds to help the Ambulance staff cope with the extraordinary demands of fighting this pandemic.  For that we are so grateful.

Share your #TwoPointSixChallenge

We’d also love to see videos and photos of you completing your challenge so don’t forget to tag us on social media!
