One of our barristers, Leslie Keegan, has coordinated eminent medical and legal speakers from the UK and Ireland to deliver free and easily accessible recordings on medical and legal issues as part of the 2.6 Challenge. Leslie’s aim is to raise vital funds and awareness for charity. The Coronavirus (COVID-19) epidemic has caused so many events raising such important funds for charities, to be cancelled, and by taking on the 2.6 Challenge, we can make a difference. Those that view these online will be invited to contribute to one of our chosen charities.

We have an A to Z list of 26 medical topics delivered by medical and legal speakers. Help us to help these charities by sharing our recordings with your colleagues and friends. It is hugely educational and for very worthwhile causes.

You can view the recordings here:

This table will be updated as the recordings are completed, please check back here on a regular basis.

The chosen charities and links to donate are below. Please click on the charity names to donate:

Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH)

GOSH faces an unprecedented challenge fighting the pandemic and is doing what it can to help and support children. Children have been transferred from hospitals across London to Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH), so space in those hospitals can be freed up to focus on adults with COVID-19. GOSH has increased its intensive care capacity to make sure it has room for the UK’s most seriously ill children as it is needed.

Marie Curie

Marie Curie Nurses and frontline staff are needed more than ever to provide vital care, expertise and compassion to dying people and their families, in their homes and hospices across the UK. They rely on the generosity of the public to deliver care. But along with so much else, most fundraising activities have been put on hold. They’re facing a devastating loss of funds. Their volunteers are unable to collect on the streets. Major fundraising events and community activities have been cancelled or postponed and charity shops are closed.
