Take The 2.6 Challenge for DSWF

Covid-19 is affecting all walks of life and the work of DSWF is no exception, with events and activities being cancelled or limited due to the current crisis. Which is why we’re taking part in The 2.6 Challenge – a nationwide initiative set up by Save the UK Charities to engage people like you around the world in a show of strength and support for the causes dear to them. And we’d love for you to join our 2.6 Challenge team!

Our wildlife needs us now, more than ever before and with your help, we can continue to stand together and save endangered species from the brink of extinction. 

Get involved in the TwoPointSixChallenge

The #TwoPointSixChallenge is a fun and easy way to support DSWF and our precious wildlife from your own home or during your daily outdoor exercise. The idea is to…

  • Choose your own #TwoPointSixChallenge – a challenge that suits your skills and ability, involving the numbers 2.6 or 26*
  • Donate £26 (or any amount you wish) to DSWF here or through our JustGiving page. You can also create your own page to fundraise even more.
  • Share your challenge on social media, tagging us @dswfwildlife #TwoPointSixChallenge and nominating others to take part!

What will be your #TwoPointSixChallenge for wildlife?

Here are some ideas to get you started or click here for more inspiration…

  • Run or walk 2.6 or 26 miles dressed up in an animal-related outfit
