Captain Tom 100 Challenge
National Star, like many other charities, has been hugely impacted by the coronavirus pandemic. It has come at a heavy financial cost to the charity, with the cancellation of a large number of fundraising events and the loss of thousands of pounds in income.
The Captain Tom 100 challenge offers supporters, of all ages and abilities, the opportunity to raise crucial funds for National Star, 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.
How it works
It’s so simple. All participants need to do is dream up a Captain Tom 100 challenge based around the number 100 and do it at anytime and anywhere over Captain Tom’s birthday weekend – starting on Friday 30 April through to Bank Holiday Monday 3 May.
The challenge could be walking 100 steps or running 100 metres, scoring 100 goals, swimming 100 lengths, 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.
Share your 100 on social media, using #CaptainTom100. Remember to tag in National Star so we can also shout about your efforts!
Thanks in advance for your challenge on our behalf.
