2.6 Challenge: Support our work for new parents!

Support our 2.6 Challenge to help us continue our vital services throughout the COVID-19 pandemic

The coronavirus pandemic is affecting pregnant women and new parents across the UK. This is leading to increased feelings of isolation, anxiety and uncertainty for many families, at a time when support has fallen away and the NHS is under great pressure.

Support when it’s needed

NCT is experiencing a huge surge in demand. Now more than ever, pregnant women and new parents need our support and services.


Just head to our JustGiving 2.6 Challenge website. Your support means so much to us right now – and to families up and down the UK. Thank you.

We have to be there for parents-to-be and new mums and dads. We can’t let them down when they need us the most. But the pandemic has had a catastrophic effect on our fundraising events, which we rely on heavily to help fund our work.

That’s what the 2.6 Challenge is all about – supporting UK charities, like NCT, to continue their vital services throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.

Whether £2.60 or £26 or £260, your donation will make an enormous difference. And if you donate before midnight today (30 April) your donation will be doubled by Just Giving!

Our #HomeHeroes

The 2.6 Challenge is about supporting UK charities continue their vital services.

We have loved seeing all of the amazing fundraising challenges completed by our #HomeHeroes.

Check out some of them below (left to right):

  • NCT Wadsworth Branch with their press-up challenge.
  • Lovely Emma who is running 26 laps of her garden for 7 days.
  • Elgan and his daughter who ascended the equivalent of Snowdon 2.6 times via their staircase.

We are so grateful and proud of them all!
