Crawley Open House needs your help

The Covid-19 pandemic has had a catastrophic effect with the cancellation of thousands of events and the huge loss of income through fundraising events.

The Virgin Money London Marathon alone, which should have taken place on Sunday 26 April, is the world’s biggest one-day fundraising event.

Many charities have had to reduce or stop services at a time when vulnerable members of society need them most; thousands of staff have been placed on furlough and many charities will not survive the next few months.

You can help

Join the country and do the 2.6 Challenge to help Crawley Open House.

How can you get involved?  The 2.6 Challenge can be any activity you like, from running 2.6 miles to holding an online workout with 26 of your friends. You can do anything! Need inspiration? See below for more ideas. Whatever your age or ability, you can take part. After all, we’re not looking for superheroes. We’re looking for Home Heroes.
