2.6 Challenge

2.6 Challenge

Welcome to the 2.6 challenge! – Covid-19 is impacting everyone, everywhere, and the charity sector is also feeling its disastrous effects.

To support charities, organisers from the nation’s biggest fundraising event, the London Marathon, have created the 2.6k challenge for everyone to give back to the causes they support.

Support U are looking to raise the funds to by our home in Castle Street, so 

Jess, instead of walking 100km in September will be climbing the stairs in 15 Castle Street 260 times, this is the equivalent of walking up and down Ben Nevis in Scotland. 


Chris, in light of his planned half marathon will be running 26km while staying within 2.6 km of his home.

If you’d like to fundraise with us, simply set yourself a challenge such as a 2.6k jog or climbing the stairs 26 times and start raising money so we can continue to Support U.

STAYING SAFE WHILE IN LOCKDOWN​

Staying Safe while in lockdown

Are you finding it difficult to be yourself right now?

There are 1’000’s of LGBT+ people in the same position. The added issue for you is that you can’t call anyone, the house is busy and someone might hear you.

Here at Support U we have a dedicated team ready to take an online chat with you. Please use it and go stealth, if you can.

Everyone talks about mental health but if what your hiding is hard for you to talk about, then reach out to us. We are a confidential support service for LGBT+ and questioning people. 

You are not alone. We stand by you. We respect your situation and understand it.
