On Sunday, the 26th April to replace the postponed London Marathon, where over £60 million was expected to be raised for UK charities, we have been given an opportunity to do a fundraiser, called the 2.6 Challenge for which you can all take part and raise money for The Butterfly Tree.

The #TwoPointSixChallenge can be any activity you like incorporating the number 26, which is the number of miles run during a marathon.

Examble of activities can include:

  • 2.6 mile walk, run, cycle
  • a virtual workout, quiz or party with 26 friends
  • jump 26 times on a trampoline
  • 26 minutes of yoga, pilates or dance
  • For more ideas follow the link:

If you would like to participate and raise money to help The Butterfly Tree provide food distributions and medical supplies for Zambia, or any of your chosen projects that we support, please contact jane@thebutterflytree.org.uk

100% of money raised, which will be collected on our behalf by Virgin Money Giving, will go towards our grass root projects. Our page, on their website, is now live please click on this link. You can either set up a fundraising page or make a donation to help us continue our vital work in Zambia.

Several of our Trustees and volunteers, including myself, are participating. Carolyn Howe, a volunteer and trained exercise teacher, is offering three back to back classes for just a donation of £2.6 for each at 11am on Sunday.
