Captain Tom Challenge – School Resources

Are you a local school? We need your support! 
We’d like to invite your school to take part in Captain Tom 100 – a special fundraising event to celebrate Captain Sir Tom Moore’s amazing achievements over his upcoming birthday weekend.

The idea is simple. Dream up a Captain Tom 100 challenge based around the number 100 and do it at anytime, anywhere, from Friday 30 April through to Bank Holiday Monday 3 May.

We understand that this might be a tricky time schedule for schools as you may be off then but you can start your fundraising now and aim to finish for Toms birthday!
Your Captain Tom 100 can be 100 of anything! Whatever is a challenge for you: walk 100 steps or run 100 metres. Score 100 goals. Bake 100 cakes or climb 100 stairs. Hop 100 laps of the garden, write a 100-word poem – anything at all, inside or outside.
Through Captain Tom 100, we’re aiming to offer everyone – whatever their age or ability – the chance to raise funds for Derby & Burton Hospitals Charity, while celebrating Captain Tom’s generosity of spirit, the joy he brought to millions, and his sense of fun.

Here’s what we’d like you to do:
1. Decide on your Captain Tom 100 challenge.
2. As a school or individually, fundraise or donate to Derby & Burton Hospitals Charity by setting up a page at
3. Complete your 100 and share photos or video on social media, using #CaptainTom100 and don’t forget to tag us! Twitter @hospitalcharity Facebook @DerbyBurtonHospitalsCharity and Instagram @derbyburtonhospitalscharity

To help you get the message out to around the school, we’ve created resources to bring Captain Tom 100 to life, including colouring sheets and posters that can be downloaded at

Thank you for your support. Together we can ensure Captain’s Tom’s message of hope – “Tomorrow will be a good day” –becomes an enduring legacy, uniting people all over the world and inspiring a new generation of Captain Toms.

If you have any further questions, please feel free to get in touch.
