Captain Tom 100 Challenge
Fancy taking part in the Captain Tom 100 Challenge and raising some funds for PLUS???
What’s the Captain Tom 100 Challenge we hear you say…..
Friday 30th April 2021 would have been Captain Sir Tom Moore’s 101st birthday and the one-year anniversary of the extraordinary celebrations following the conclusion of his famous 100 laps
of his garden that raised an incredible £38.9 million for the NHS.
Everyone – of all ages and abilities – is invited to take on a challenge around the number 100 any time and anywhere over Captain Tom’s birthday weekend, starting on Friday 30th April through to Bank Holiday Monday 3rd May.
It could be walking 100 minutes or running 100 metres, scoring 100 goals or baking 100 cakes, climbing 100 stairs, hopping 100 laps of the garden, building 100 sandcastles, drawing 100 pictures, telling 100 jokes, flipping 100 pancakes – anything at all, inside or outside.
It’s so simple. All you need to do is dream up your Captain Tom 100, register it through the link below and tell all your friends and families that you are raising funds for PLUS
Let us know what you are doing so we can shout out about it.

You can send these to your friends and family.
Then make a wee donation, in lieu of paying for cards and stamps and help raise funds for PLUS at the same time. Just click here.
Dunblane Boys Brigade – Carols in the Cul-de-sac
PLUS are delighted to be one of the charities chosen for this lovely fundraising idea.
Thank you so much to Dunblane Boys Brigade.
The 2.6 Challenge
The 2.6 challenge will take place on 26th April, the day the London Marathon should have been taking place. The goal is to raise £67.6M for charities across the UK in a day – making it the biggest fundraising event raising the most money in a single day. WOW!
If 2.6 million people donated £26 / fundraised £26 they would reach this total.
It is very simple to get involved and we would love all our families, children and young people to get involved.
The idea is to do something around the numbers 2.6 – from running or cycling 2.6 miles to skipping for 26 minutes to reading 26 books to your children … literally anything.
We are going to suggest ideas each day in the lead up on our facebook page and would love others to share ideas of what they are doing. Whatever your age or ability, you can take part.
We are not looking for superheroes – we’re looking for stay at home heroes.
Lots of celebrities and sports teams are signing up getting behind this event, making it hugely exciting and turning it into a wonderful community event.
So what do you do?
- Choose your #TwoPointSixChallenge
- Use the link below to fundraise for PLUS – you can set up your own page if you want to and share with friends and family
- We would love 26 families to raise £26 for PLUS but whatever you can fundraise is an amazing help!
- Complete your challenge on or around 26th April
And PLEASE, send us pictures or wee videos for us to share.
