Captain Tom 100 - Do it your way


University Hospitals Birmingham Charity's supporters invited to celebrate Captain Sir Tom's achievements in special fundraising initiative.

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 UHB Charity is proud to be inviting our supporters to take part. 

University Hospitals Birmingham NHS Foundation Trust has been catastrophically impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic, and we need your support to help UHB Charity support our hospitals during these challenging times!

Captain Tom 100 offers supporters, of all ages and abilities, 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.

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.
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. 

Once supporters have chosen their challenge, they can fundraise or donate to UHB Charity and share their 100 on social media, using #CaptainTom100 and @uhbcharity.
