The 2.6 Challenge - Save the UK's Charities

Thank you to everyone who supported us in the 2.6 Challenge. We raised over £4,000 to help support Worcester Cathedral.

The Dean took on a "2.6 Challenge" to raise money for the Cathedral. He read the whole of Shakespeare's play Richard III, taking all the parts! It took him 2.6 hours, on Sunday 26 April, starting at 3pm. It was live-streamed on our Facebook page and a recording can be watched there.

Director of Music, Samuel Hudson undertook to play Elgar pieces for 26 minutes and Rachael Hall, Database Manager did 26 taekwondo moves 26 times in 2.6 hours.
