What’s your Captain Tom 100 for Katharine House?


Mark the anniversary of Captain Sir Tom Moore’s birthday with a bank holiday fundraising challenge

This Friday (April 30) would have been Captain Sir Tom Moore’s 101st birthday.   To mark the occasion the Katharine House Hospice are inviting us to take part in the Captain Tom 100 challenge.

The idea is to celebrate Captain Sir Tom’s achievements and at the same time raise vital funds for Katharine House Hospice.   Friday marks the one-year anniversary of the celebrations that followed the conclusion of his fundraising walk that raised £38.9million for the NHS.

Following the outpouring of heartfelt messages since Captain Sir Tom’s death on 2 February, his family pledged to celebrate his life with an event that everyone around the world could get involved in to celebrate his generosity, hope and sense of fun – the Captain Tom 100.

The Captain Tom 100 can be any challenge of your choice, as long as it is based around the number 100.   As examples Katharine House has suggested scoring 100 goals, baking 100 cakes, climbing 100 stairs, hopping 100 laps of the garden and even flipping 100 pancakes!

Once the challenge is set the fundraising for Katharine House can begin.   People are being encouraged to share their challenges on social media using the hashtag #CaptainTom100.
