Captain Tom 100 invites people across the world to take on a challenge based around the number 100 to raise funds for charity.

Marie-Louise Robinson, community fundraiser at Hull and East Yorkshire Mind said: “The Captain Tom 100 challenge is a really great and a fun way to raise much-needed funds.

“We are a local charity, providing advice and support for local people experiencing poor mental health.

“By taking part in this challenge you will be making a real difference to people’s lives in our area.

“We’d love to hear your ideas. Email them to [email protected]

“Once supporters have chosen their challenge, they can fundraise or donate to Hull and East Yorkshire Mind, and share their 100 on social media using #CaptainTom100.” 

Captain Tom’s daughter, Hannah Ingram-Moore, said: “We are so grateful for the incredible support we have received since my father started his record-breaking fundraising walk and that his message of hope was shared with the world.

“Captain Tom was very proud to be able to leave behind the growing legacy of his Foundation.

“We know he would love the idea of inviting everyone to get involved and share their Captain Tom 100 so that together we can ensure ‘Tomorrow will be a good day’.

“We look forward to celebrating with you on what would have been his 101st birthday weekend – it’s going to be fun!”
