Captain Tom 100 for WESC Foundation
Following the outpouring of heartfelt messages since the death of Captain Sir Tom Moore on 2 February, his family pledged to celebrate his life with an event that everyone, in the UK and around the world, could be involved in. That event is the Captain Tom 100 and WESC Foundation is proud to be inviting our supporters to take part.
WESC Foundation has been hugely impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic. Like many charities we’ve seen fundraising events cancelled over the past year, and it’s sadly affecting our work to improve the lives of young people with vision impairment and complex needs.
Captain Tom 100 offers WESC Foundation supporters, of all ages and abilities, the the opportunity to raise crucial funds for our charity, 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 any time and anywhere over Captain Tom’s birthday weekend – starting on Friday 30 April through to Bank Holiday Monday 3 May.
What sort of challenge?
The challenge could be walking 100 steps or running 100 metres, scoring 100 goals, baking 100 cakes, 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.
Once you have chosen their challenge, you can fundraise or donate to WESC Foundation, and share their 100 on social media, using #CaptainTom100Start fundraising
