2.6 CHALLENGERS RAISE OVER £6,000 FOR THE LONDON IRISH FOUNDATION

People of all ages took part in the challenge by undertaking a wide variety of activities that involved the numbers 2 and 6.  The Foundation were delighted to see some of the London Irish players participating in the 26 card challenge along with families who were involved in our Lyon ventures. We received reports of people running and walking in their neighbourhoods and around their gardens, and of innovative exercise routines and games both indoor and outdoor.  The number of young people along with families that took up the challenge has been commendable.

Commenting on the outcome, Andy Keast, Chief Executive of the London Irish Foundation said, “Given the relatively short lead time, we are delighted that so many participated in the weekend’s activities.  I would like to thank each and every one, young and old, for their efforts.  In these difficult times when so many calls are being made on people’s time and money, to have raised over £6,000 for the Foundation is a superb outcome and we are most grateful.”

The 2.6 Challenge, which was organised by those behind the UK’s leading mass participation events, launched last Sunday 26 April 2020 – what should have been the date of the 40th London Marathon, the world’s biggest one day annual fundraising event.  The Challenge was designed to raise vital funds to help support the country’s charities adversely affected by the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic.
