The 2.6 Challenge

Apr 16, 2020

Be a Home Hero

Join us for the 2.6 challenge on Sunday 26 April and help save the UK’s charities. The coronavirus pandemic has had a catastrophic effect across the sector with events being cancelled and an estimated loss of around £4 billion.

So, on Sunday 26 April, charities are asking people to get involved with the 2.6 challenge to show your support for the causes close to your heart. Will you join with #teamferne?

You could run 2.6km around your garden, keep silent for 26 minutes, do 26 sets of squats, or hold a virtual tea party with 26 friends. All the money you raise for Ferne will help us to ensure that we are always there for every animal that needs us.

If you don’t want to commit to a challenge, you could just simply donate £26.

Whatever you choose to do, please make sure you follow government guidelines on exercise and social distancing.

We’d love to know what you’re doing and see your photos. Share your challenge on social media, using the hashtags #TwoPointSixChallenge and #teamferne and tag us in your post with @ferneanimalsanc

If you have any questions, or need help with the online platforms, just get in touch by emailing

Thank you from all the animals and humans at Ferne!
