Take on the 2.6 Challenge

West London Mission, who support the homeless and vulnerable people in our area, are looking to raise some much-needed funds by inviting people to take part in their 2.6 Challenge. The object is simple – choose an activity for which 2.6 or 26 can be the theme or goal. This could be a creative challenge, an exercise programme, performance or culinary feast that you do either by yourself or with friends, family, neighbours or colleagues. Then either donate or fundraise for WLM and share your efforts online to encourage more people to take part.

WLM has played a crucial role during this period, providing invaluable support to the homeless and vulnerable, many of whom are at extreme risk suffering with underlying health conditions. These measures have included the sourcing and funding of temporary housing and outreach work via community centres and support of this kind is expected to be needed for months to come. The number 2.6 is particularly meaningful for WLM as it represents the amount, in £000’s, that is needed every day to keep their residents and service users safe in the current context. Click here to donate.

WLM aren’t the only ones that need your continued help and contributions. There are many organisations in the Quarter that continue to support vulnerable groups including the elderly, low income families, those in food poverty and those who are isolated. These charities and community groups desperately require extra funds to support their ongoing operations – in particular, for deliveries, shelter, fuel and food – as well as volunteers. Check out the ‘Local Giving’ page within the Coronavirus section of the website to find out more about ways that you and your business can help.
