Captain Tom 100 Challenge

A Year on from Captain Tom’s infamous 100 laps of his garden in aid of NHS Charities Together, schools have been supporting the Captain Tom foundation in raising money through the 100 challenge.

Over the Bank Holiday weekend from the 30th April to 3rd May, Hannah Ingram-Moore, Captain Tom’s daughter invited everyone to join in: “Captain Tom 100 invites everyone of all ages and abilities to dream up a challenge based around the number 100 and complete it in school on Friday 30 April or over Captain Tom’s birthday weekend through to Bank Holiday Monday 3rd May. Take a look at our Captain Tom 100 video to find out more.

“Schools can raise funds, donate to The Captain Tom Foundation or the charity of their choice, or just complete a challenge for fun and help spread Captain Tom’s message of hope and resilience.”

Girls from Headington Prep did an incredible job in raising sizeable sums of money over the weekend through challenging themselves in innovative ways:

  • Sofia in Year 3 jumped 100 times on a trampoline
  • Florence in Year 4 wrote the names of 100 animals
  • Jemimah in Year 4 made an image of Captain Tom into a 100 dot-to-dot drawing
  • Sasha in Reception built a 100 brick Lego tower
  • Natalia held her toes to her shoulder for 100 seconds while maintaining her balance
  • Allegra in Reception clapped 100 times
  • Sophia in Year 1 ran 65 lengths of her garden, then cycled 10 lengths and swam 25 lengths at her swimming lesson raising over £100 all by herself!

Together girls raised over £1,660! Well done to everyone who got involved!
