"Captain Tom was very proud to be able to leave behind the growing legacy of his Foundation. We know he would love the idea of inviting everyone to get involved and share their Captain Tom 100 so that together we can ensure 'Tomorrow will be a good day'. We look forward to celebrating with you on what would have been his 101st birthday weekend - it's going to be fun!"
Hannah Ingram-Moore, The Captain Tom Foundation.
Give if you can
The Covid-19 pandemic has had a catastrophic effect on charities, with the cancellation of thousands of events and the loss of billions in income. At a time when vulnerable members of society need them most, charities have had to cut services, furlough staff and some have even shut down. Captain Tom stepped up to help, taking on his famous walk to support the NHS Covid-19 appeal and inspiring millions to donate to the cause.
Now the Captain Tom 100 is offering everyone the chance to raise funds for the charity of their choice or for The Captain Tom Foundation.
Get ready to take part in the Captain Tom 100
Do it your way
Everyone – of all ages and abilities – is invited to take on a challenge around the number 100 any time and anywhere over Captain Tom’s birthday weekend, starting on Friday 30 April through to Bank Holiday Monday 3 May. That could be walking 100 steps or running 100 metres, scoring 100 goals, baking 100 cakes, climbing 100 stairs, hopping 100 laps of the garden, building 100 sandcastles, writing a 100-word poem, flipping 100 pancakes – anything at all, inside or outside.
There are no rules (apart from the Government guidelines on how to stay safe during this time).
Share your 100!
Whether you’re doing 100 steps or baking 100 cakes, we’d love to see it!
