Keeping up with the Brits: Helping to save UK charities


| News

Over the weekend, people across the country took on the 2.6 Challenge, a national initiative from the organisers of the Virgin London Marathon to help raise money for charities that would otherwise be set to miss out on funds raised over the event. Our Brits were on hand to do their bit and support UK charities by either taking on the LTA’s Tennis 26 Challenge, or devising their own unique ways to raise money for their chosen charity.

Elsewhere, Andy Murray and Johanna Konta have been preparing to take part in their first ever tennis eSports event at this week’s Mutua Madrid Open. Kyle Edmund is keeping himself busy with a huge Lego build, whilst other Brits are continuing to train from home and helping fans stay active as well.
