At Smart Works it remains our commitment to help any woman who needs our support. 

A friendly face or a reassuring voice can make all the difference. That is why we’re continuing to run a virtual service, supporting unemployed women and giving them the confidence, self-belief and practical tools to help them get back on their feet and transform their lives. 

We can’t do this alone, so we’re inviting you to join us and take part in the 2.6 Challenge. Created by the organisers of mass participation events across the UK, the 2.6 Challenge is a nationwide fundraising campaign to help charities during this difficult time. 

We’re challenging you to think big, be creative and use your imagination. Find a challenge relating to the numbers 2.6 or 26 and get involved. 

Most people (including the Smart Works team) will be taking part on Sunday 26th April, but you can complete your activity whenever you like. Just follow the steps below: 

  1. Decide on your 2.6 challenge – there are lots of ideas here and we will be sharing inspiration on our @SmartWorksCharity social channels over the coming days 
  2. Simply donate or set up your own fundraising page supporting Smart Works here  
  3. Ask your friends and family to sponsor you or challenge them to do their own 2.6 Challenge 
  4. Complete your challenge 
  5. Share your challenge on social media with #twopointsixchallenge #TeamSmartWorks and tag @SmartWorksCharity 

With your help, we will continue to be there for every woman who needs us and prepare for the moment when our service is more needed than ever before. Together, we will lift one another up and come back stronger. 

We can’t wait to see what you get up to, thank you for your support.
