In these unprecedented times, when the majority of the country is in lockdown and people are home staying safe with their families, the Grosvenor team wanted to keep up their commitments to their chosen Charity, Children Hospice South West (CHSW). They are supporting CHSW for the second year running and wanted to make sure that they remain focussed on raising as much money as possible for them, even in these difficult times.

As a company, Grosvenor have decided to sign-up to the 2.6 challenge, a nationwide fundraising campaign to raise money for a chosen charity. The challenge is simple, think of an activity around the number 2.6 or 26, with the only caveat being that activities must follow the Government guidelines on exercise and social distancing. The challenge will officially launch on 26th April which is when the 2020 London Marathon was initially scheduled.

The team at Grosvenor have already been busy with their own mini challenges which include cycling 26 miles twice a week, lots of walking (with and without dogs), 262 sit-ups, 26.2 minutes of box fit per day, running 26k in a week and lots of laps with a wheelbarrow. With all these challenges set, the target to raise over £500 looks set to be completed very shortly.

Finally, Ben Olson, Grosvenor Managing Director has pledged that the company will match each individual commitment with the money that they are able to raise.

Children’s Hospice South West provide hospice care for children and families who live in the South West from their three hospices across the region; Barnstable, Bristol and St Austell. They provide care for children and young people aged 0 – 21 years with life-limiting or life-threatening conditions which mean that they are not expected to survive into adulthood.

For over 25 years, their care and support has provided a wide range of services for families in the South West including specialist palliative care, respite for the entire family, a sibling service for brothers and sisters, end of life care and a bereavement service for as long as they are needed.
