There’s still time to take part in the 2.6 Challenge!

A huge virtual hug and thanks from all of us at Batemans/Satkaarya.

In just three weeks, our Circle of Support Appeal and Challenge 2.6 activities have raised nearly £7,500, and the money is still coming in.

And there’s still time to join the 2.6 Challenge.

It’s a nationwide campaign, launched to help charities plug an expected £4bn income shortfall due to Covid-19.

Anything with 2.6 or 26 in it will do!

Just think of your own activity based around the numbers 2.6 or 26 – anything goes.

So far our supporters have done everything from run relays equalling a final distance of 26.2 miles (the length of a marathon), spun plates, stood on their head for 26 minutes, pushed through to achieve 26 sit-ups, and done 26 cartwheels. It’s your choice.

For those of you whose athletic days are behind you, or never began, please support others – family or friends – as they do their very own 2.6 effort.

This is a marvellous opportunity to be part of something really big. Get active, have fun, and raise money to help our vulnerable children in Chennai.
