Captain Tom 100

Join us for the Captain Tom 100 event to support Prostate Scotland – virtually!

The family of Captain Sir Tom Moore are asking people to take on their own fundraising challenge in aid of a charity of their choice.  It’s a virtual event to celebrate his life and everyone is invited to join in!

On 6th April last year, Captain Sir Tim Moore set out to walk 100 laps of his garden by his 100th birthday on 30 April.  His goal was to raise £1,000 for NHS Charities Together and he went on to raise £38.9 million.

His family now want others to set themselves a fundraising challenge around the number 100.

This could be you walking or running 100 laps of your garden or stairs!  Or you could sing 100 songs, score 100 goals, bake 100 cakes, putt 100 golf balls, build 100 sandcastles, write 100 poems, pedal 100 miles, tell 100 jokes, eat 100 baked beans..!  Here’s 100 ideas to get started – you can do any activity you wish.  You may even want to devise an activity that your whole family or household could participate in as a team!

Please stay safe…

and follow up-to-date Scottish Government and NHS guidelines, on staying safe and on social distancing.

When should I do my challenge?

At any time from Friday 30th April to Bank Holiday Monday 3rd May.  This is Captain Tom’s birthday weekend!  Friday 30th April would have been his 101st birthday and the one year anniversary of the completion of his amazing fundraising achievement.
