Ely Cathedral


Although our building may be closed to keep everybody safe, we are working harder than ever to stay in touch. Many people have now joined us online for services and prayers have been emailed to us.

A lack of visitors however will undoubtedly have a huge impact on Ely Cathedral and we need your support to ensure we can bounce back.

The Challenge

Inspired by the London Marathon (26.2 miles), the 2.6 Challenge asks you to do something to keep active and help save the UK's charities. Everyone can take part. Think of an activity based around the numbers 26 or 2.6, and complete it from 26 April.

Why not undertake 26 minutes of gardening, or walk 2.6 miles (however many days it might take). Get your family involved: hop on one leg for 2.6 minutes, or run 26 lengths of the garden. The activity is entirely up to you, but please stick to social distancing.

Fundraising is easy. Create a fundraising page selecting Ely Cathedral as your charity, and share it with family and friends, or you can make your own donation to help us through this time.
