Captain Tom 100 - Friday 30th April to Monday 3rd May 2021
The Covid-19 pandemic has had a catastrophic effect on charities, with the cancellation of thousands of events and the loss of billions in income. At a 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 for The Captain Tom Foundation. Children from Burley Oaks are keen to support this cause and will be taking part in the challenge in support of Martin House Hospice for Children and Young People - voted for by the children. Dream up a challenge, do it 100 times and fundraise.
