Take on the #TwoPointSixChallenge this Sunday

23 April 2020

Take on any challenge or activity involving the numbers 2 or 6 this Sunday 26th April and raise money for City of Trees as part of a nationwide initiative to fundraise for charities.

What is the 2.6 Challenge?

This challenge was set up in response to coronavirus’s impact on UK charities.

With all challenge events cancelled for the foreseeable future many charities have lost out on the amazing fundraising efforts of the UK public.

This Sunday the 26th April was set up in response to this and to help raise much needed funds for charities across the UK’s through a dedicated day of fundraising.


What can you do?

Either spread the word about the challenge or take part yourself! By raising money for City of Trees you will be helping to plant more trees across Greater Manchester and bring our beautiful woods back into use for both people and wildlife.

You can do any challenge involving the numbers 2 or 6 such as:

  • Running, cycling or walking 26km or 26 miles
  • Climbing the stairs 26 times
  • Doing a plank for 26 seconds

For those wanting something a bit more fun and less fitness we have designed a 26 question tree-themed quiz which you can download below. Grab a group of mates and ask them to donate to be part of it.


Tell us – and others - what you are doing

You can set up your own JustGiving page for this event via this link or people can pledge via the same link.

Ask people to donate whatever they feel as this difficult time – whether that’s £2.60 or £26.

Don’t forget to spread the word about your activity – tag us on facebook, twitter or Instagram @cityoftreesmcr and use #TwoPointSixChallenge
