A visually impaired mum and her daughter have taken on the 2.6 challenge to raise funds for Croydon Vision.
Staff, volunteers and members have been doing a range of challenges from felting 26 hearts, climbing 26 flights of stairs a day, running a marathon over a week, and doing 26000 steps a day.
Danielle Cleary, is finishing off a garland of hearts while her daughter Erin completed the stair challenge to support Croydon Vision which works directly with people affected by sight loss. During Covid-19, the charity has had to adapt its service provision providing cooked meals, essential shopping and phone calls to clients.
Danielle, who is Information and Assistance officer at Croydon Vision explained that the pandemic had put a huge strain on charities such as Croydon Vision, as fundraising activities have halted but adapting its services to cope with demand have increased costs.
The 2.6 Challenge is a national campaign to raise funds for the charity sector which is facing a £4 billion loss in income as a result of the pandemic.
