Captain Tom 100
Do It Your Way
Captain Tom’s Birthday
Friday 30th April 2021 would have been Captain Sir Tom Moore’s 101st birthday and the first anniversary of the extraordinary celebrations following the conclusion of his famous 100 laps of his garden that raised an incredible £38.9 million for the NHS.
“Tomorrow Will Be a Good Day”
Tom’s simple message of hope – “Tomorrow will be a good day” – resonated around the globe during some of the darkest days of the pandemic, bringing light and comfort to millions worldwide.
Following the outpouring of heartfelt messages since his death on 2nd February, his family pledged to celebrate his life with an event that everyone. could get involved in to celebrate Captain Tom’s generosity of spirit, the hope and joy he brought to millions, and his sense of fun.
And that event is – The Captain Tom 100.
Everyone – of all ages and abilities – is invited to take on a challenge around the number 100 anytime and anywhere over Captain Tom’s birthday weekend, starting on Friday 30th April through to Bank Holiday Monday 3rd May. That could
be walking 100 steps, scoring 100 goals, baking 100 cakes, climbing 100 stairs, hopping 100 laps of the garden, building 100 sandcastles, flipping 100 pancakes – anything at all, inside or outside.
Do It Your Way
The Covid-19 pandemic has had a catastrophic effect on charities, with the cancellation of events and the loss of income. At this 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 The Captain Tom Foundation.
We would be delighted if you could support Ups and Downs Southwest by taking part in this event and raising some much-needed funds for us.
We have set a target of £1,000 and, with your help, we can reach this to fund a Family Event in 2022.
