Can you help inspirational six year old to raise more for charity on 2.6 Challenge?

by Danielle Thompson (May 2020)

A SIX year old fundraiser has already raised more than £290 by taking on the 2.6 Challenge – can you help her to raise more?

The ‘2.6 challenge’ was launched at the end of April in lieu of the London Marathon – and charities across the country are calling out for you to help. The charity campaign challenges entrants to dream up an a fundraising activity based around the numbers 2.6 or 26 and is open to anyone of any age.

One excited youngster who answered the call to charity is Annabelle Johnson, six, from Litherland.

She was diagnosed only last week with benign rolandic epilepsy, which is a form of epilepsy that most children grow out of by the age of 15.

She has taken on the 2.6 Challenge in the form of a bike ride to raise money for Young Epilepsy, a charity that supports young people with epilepsy to build better futures – plus Annabelle has been hosting bonus balls and raffles online with the help of her mum, Abbie.

Abbie said: “We are also doing bonus balls and spot the balls/raffles to raise money! All money raised is going on a just giving page which will then be sent to the charity directly!

“She has so far raised over £250 including the bonus ball money which we are still awaiting payments from some people!”

To support Anabelle, go to ‘Annie’s fundraising page’ on Facebook or go to her Just Giving page at https://is.gd/G5GSeo
