TAKING ON THE 2.6 CHALLENGE!
Not only has the pandemic meant that BOSP has had to suspend our services, we have also has to cancel vital community fundraising events. Events we rely on during the year to help pay for our core costs such as insurance, electricity and IT costs.
The London Marathon on the 26th April has also had to be delayed so instead many people in the country are gearing up to support small charities like BOSP in a simple fun way by thinking up a sponsored activity based around the numbers 26 or 2.6.
The 26th April will be the first day of the challenge and can be completed on this day or the days around it. Lock down means it will have to be a challenge that can be done safely within your home or during your hour's daily exercise, providing you can do so whilst safely following Government guidelines.
In order to get started Virgin Money Giving have produced this really fun booklet of 26 ideas for fundraising challenges. You can also print out the poster, colour it in and stick it in your window to show you are taking part.

Best of luck in your challenges and remember to send BOSP your photographs!
