Last week the organisers of the biggest mass-participation sports events across the country came up an amazing idea to raise funds to help to save the UK’s charities during the Covid-19 pandemic, the 2.6 Challenge.
World Child Cancer have asked all their supporters to join the challenge by taking on an activity of their choice from Sunday 26th April around the numbers 2.6 and 26, and to either fundraise or donate to support children with cancer around the world, and our Programme Coordinator for Cameroon Glenn Mbingo has already answered our call!
Earlier this year Glenn had come to the U.K. for a Commonwealth Programme, and is currently unable to return home as his country has closed its borders to try and protect Cameroon's fragile health care system. Glenn has been able to continue much of his work, and has been supporting his team remotely as he stays with our Trustee Rachel Hollis in sunny Yorkshire!
To help keep the household fit in mind and body during lockdown Rachel's partner Rod has converted their kitchen table and a plank of wood into an international outdoor table tennis court and challenged Glenn to 26 games of non-stop Ping Pong! On the 26th April this will be the venue for the live sport spectacular, and we can't wait to update you on twitter with who comes out on top.
