The #CaptainTom100 is a new national fundraising event celebrating the amazing achievements of Captain Sir Tom Moore, which simultaneously gives you the chance to build on his incredible legacy and help a host of charities, just like us, to continue their inspirational work.
Last April, Captain Tom set out to complete 100 laps of his garden to thank our NHS heroes. He finished his challenge having raised a phenomental £38.9 million for the NHS Covid-19 appeal.
Now it’s your turn to make a difference.
There are two ways you give back by completing your very own #CaptainTom100.
You might like to take on your challenge and make a personal donation once you’ve finished your ‘100’, or you could use the event as a fundraising opportunity and ask that your loved ones sponsor you as you join in with the fun.
If you do decide to fundraise, simply follow these easy steps to get started:
1. Dream up your Captain Tom 100 challenge.
2. Click here to either donate or fundraise for Horatio’s Garden.
3. If you’re fundraising, ask your friends and family to sponsor you.
4. Complete your 100 challenge any time between Friday 30th April and Monday 3rd May.
That’s all there is to it!
Everyone can get involved and do any kind of challenge based around the number 100. This could be swimming 100 lengths, singing for 100 minutes, writing a 100 word poem or story, doing 100 laps of a natural space near you, bouncing a ball 100 times and so on; the more creative your idea, the better!
You can join in from anywhere and at anytime across Captain Tom’s birthday weekend, which runs from Friday 30th April until Monday 3rd May.
It’s the perfect way to celebrate a truly exceptional man and will be particularly poignant too, as the Friday fittingly marks what would have been Captain Tom’s 101st birthday.
We’re really looking forward to seeing your efforts and if you’re joining in on social media, remember to tag @HoratioGarden on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram and use the hashtag #CaptainTom100 to spread the word!
Alternatively, you can also let us know you’re taking part by simply emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
