Fancy a brew? Put the kettle on and share your cuppa as part of the Just Giving 2.6 Challenge and help save our charity.

DRWF is inviting supporters to share their cuppa and donate to the charity.

In a Facebook campaign launched this morning (23rd April) we are asking supporters to join the nation and take on the 2.6 Challenge, part of Just Giving’s drive to support the UK’s charities during the COVID-19 crisis.

On the social media platform (find the DRWF Diabetes page here) we are asking people to donate the average cost of a cuppa (£2.60), share their #MyCupOfTea selfie and nominate four friends/family to continue the trend.

DRWF staff are currently working from home, but we recognised our favourite time for a mid-morning cuppa – 11am – and hope you will join us to do the same.

Tim Green, Head of Community Fundraising at DRWF said: “We wanted to recognise the spirit of the UK, during this difficult time. As a team we felt the best way to bring people together was to launch a campaign, bringing everyone together for a cuppa without the need to leave their home. We coupled this with a donation of £2.60, which represents the average cost of a cup of tea – it’s the perfect match at a challenging time for charities. We are extremely grateful to everyone who has already participated and look forward to seeing many more across social media.”

In the launch for Just Giving’s 2.6 Challenge to ‘Save The UK’s Charities’ the fundraising hosts said: “Charities need our support now more than ever. So, if you can make a donation (big or small), it would mean the world to them. You could even go one step further by creating a JustGiving page, collecting donations from family and friends too.”

You do not have to be on social media to participate and donations can made at the link below.
