NCW supporting the Captain Tom 100 Campaign

On 6 April 2020, Captain Tom Moore set off from his garden to raise money for our NHS heroes. 100 laps later, he’d raised an incredible £38.9 million for the NHS Covid-19 appeal.

Twelve months on, it’s now our turn to build on his legacy.

Friday 30 April would have been Captain Tom’s 101st birthday. To honour him and his amazing achievements, The Captain Tom Foundation are asking people of all ages and abilities to take part in the Captain Tom 100 Challenge.

New College Worcester are getting involved and we are challenging YOU to join us and raise funds to help towards the education and well-being of our blind and VI students.

All you need to do is dream up a challenge based around the number 100, and do it between Friday 30 April and Monday 3 May.

You could walk 100 laps of your garden just like Captain Tom, swim 100 lengths, sing for 100 minutes or bake 100 cupcakes! There are no rules (apart from Government guidelines on the roadmap out of lockdown) and it’s open to everyone. Do it your way and have fun!
