The 2.6 Challenge is in response to the impact of COVID-19 which has led to the cancellation of thousands of charity fundraising events and the loss of billions of pounds for UK charities. In response, the organisers of the UK’s biggest mass-participation events have come together to raise vital funds to help save the UK’s charities. The Victoria Foundation needs your support now more than ever to continue to provide vital medical support and equipment.
Graham Ball, TVF Founder and CEO, and Lorna Votier, TVF Development Director, completed a 2.6 hours silence on 26th April and have raised over £1,400. The funds will be split between TVF’s support for the future generations of NHS doctors in providing Toolkit Grants and Elective Bursaries to medical students facing disadvantage and huge financial pressure during their studies, and due to the impact of COVID-19 TVF will make a contribtion towards the cost of a relaxation area and psychological support for NHS frontline staff at Kingston Hospital.
Graham and Lorna wanted to thank all those who have so generously sponsored them and to say a special thank you to Anissa and David Cantell, Cantell and Co Estate Agents for their very generous donation of £400! It's not too late to sponsor Graham or Lorna to take part in your own 2.6 Challenge!
