The Captain Tom 100 Fundraising Challenge

To celebrate the amazing achievements of Sir Captain Tom, from Friday 30 April to Monday 3 May, The Captain Tom Foundation are asking everyone to dream up a challenge based around the number 100 and fundraise for a charity of their choice.

Everyone is invited to take on a challenge around the number 100 anytime and anywhere over Captain Tom’s birthday weekend. It’s so simple.

Think up your 100 challenge. It can be anything you like – from walking 100 metres to baking 100 cakes or writing 100 letters

Take on your 100 any time between Friday 30 April and Monday 3 May

Fundraise for the Child Growth Foundation

Share your 100 on social media using #CaptainTom100

To sign up click HERE and choose the Child Growth Foundation as your chosen charity – and let us know what you will be doing!

Good luck and thank you

Santa Run

Santa Run

Autumn is here. Leaves are turning brown. There is a chill in the air and soon there will be frost on the ground. That can only mean one thing…

Christmas is coming!

So why not challenge yourself to a festive fundraiser and support our incredible work.

It is really simple.

  1. Grab a Santa suit
  2. Set up a fundraising page – Give As You Live
  3. Run

What could be easier? Well, yes, sitting at home watching the telly could be easier but it wouldn’t be as much fun, and it wouldn’t raise any money for the wonderful CGF.

Santa runs up and down the country have been cancelled this year but that shouldn’t stop the fun! You can set your own distance, create your own challenge and spread some Christmas cheer.
