Friday 30 April would have been Captain Sir Tom’s 101st birthday and it marks the one year anniversary of his fundraising walk that raised an incredible £38.9 million for the NHS.
How do I take part?
All you need to do is dream up your Captain Tom 100 – an activity of your choice based around the numbers 100 – and do it any time and anywhere from Friday 30 April through to Bank Holiday Monday 3 May.
Your 100 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 outside.
