Captain Tom 100 Fundraiser
On 6 April 2020, Captain Tom Moore set out round his garden to thank our NHS heroes. One hundred laps later, he’d raised an incredible £38.9 million for the NHS Covid-19 appeal.
His simple message of hope – “Tomorrow will be a good day” – inspired millions around the world and brought comfort and joy to so many during the pandemic.
Friday 30th April would have been his 101st birthday and to honour him and his amazing achievements we have been taking part in the Captain Tom 100 challenge.
Over the last week all of our children have been working together to complete 100 of an action or activity within school. In the Nursery the two classes have been jumping in and out of a hoop 100 times! In Reception the children have been doing star jumps 100 times between them! In Year 1 the children had to bounce the basketball 100 times between themselves and a partner. In Year 2 the children have been throwing and catching a ball 100 times in pairs. In Years 3 and 4 the children completed 100 rounds during their own class games of Rounders! In Years 5 and 6 they have been completing 100 laps of the school playground!
Would you like to join us in making a difference? We are raising money in aid of The Captain Tom Foundation and every donation will help. We will be supporting charities including The Mix, Young Minds and Place2Be who are doing incredible work supporting our young people’s mental health as we emerge from the pandemic. Thank you in advance for your contribution to this cause that means so much to everyone.
