Team Samaritans Waltham Forest are raising money for Samaritans of Waltham Forest

2.6 Challenge for Samaritans of Waltham Forest

Our story

The 2.6 Challenge can be any activity you like – from running 2.6 miles to holding an online workout with 26 of your friends.

Whatever your age or ability, you can take part. After all, we’re not looking for superheroes. We’re looking for Home Heroes.

Choose your #TwoPointSixChallenge and then make a donation using this page.

We'd love to hear your stories, pictures of your home challenges and why you are supporting Samaritans of Waltham Forest.

Samaritans of Waltham Forest and the Teams accross the country continue to be there for callers during this time, and volunteers are considered to be key workers - helping people have someone to listen to them when they need it most.

If you need someone to talk to reach out, Samaritans are still there to listen. They can't see you in-person right now but have made adjustments to keep volunteers safe so they can answer calls & emails, please bear with them if it takes longer to answer. Find out more at

Thank you for checking out our page. Making a donation is fast, easy and secure thanks to Give as you Live Donate. They'll take your donation and pass it onto Samaritans of Waltham Forest.
