30th April – 3rd May 2021
Following the outpouring of heartfelt messages since the death of Captain Sir Tom Moore on 2 February, his family pledged to celebrate his life with an event that everyone, in the UK and around the world, could be involved in. That event is the Captain Tom 100 and Lingen Davies Cancer Fund are proud to be inviting you to take part!
It’s so simple. All you need to do is dream up a Captain Tom 100 challenge based around the number 100 and do it at any time and anywhere over Captain Tom’s birthday weekend – starting on Friday 30 April through to Bank Holiday Monday 3 May.
Like many other charities, we have been hugely impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic – reporting a 37% drop in our annual income. It’s had a catastrophic effect, with the cancellation of thousands of fundraising events and the loss of billions in income.
Captain Tom 100 offers LD supporters, of all ages and abilities, the opportunity to raise crucial funds for our charity, while at the same time celebrating Captain Tom’s generosity of spirit, the hope and joy he brought to millions, and his sense of fun.
The challenge 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 out. Here’s 100 ideas of what you could do for your challenge, but don’t be afraid to come up with your own!
Once you have chosen your challenge, you can fundraise or donate to Lingen Davies, and share your 100 on social media, using #CaptainTom100. Don’t forget to tag us too so that we can see what you’re up to!
