Following the outpouring of heartfelt messages since the death of Captain Sir Tom Moore on 2 February, his family pledged to celebrate his life with an event that everyone, in the UK and around the world, could be involved in. That event is the Captain Tom 100 and LinkAble is proud to be inviting our supporters to take part.
LinkAble, like many other charities, has been hugely impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic. It’s had a catastrophic effect, with the cancellation of thousands of fundraising events and the loss of billions in income. Captain Tom 100 offers LinkAble supporters, of all ages and abilities, the opportunity to raise crucial funds for our charity, while at the same time celebrating Captain Tom’s generosity of spirit, the hope and joy he brought to millions, and his sense of fun.
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!”
Rhys Parker, Fundraising and Communications Manager at LinkAble, "Last year LinkAble staff and supporters got behind the 2.6 Challenge and raised well over £2,000. They came up with some fantastic and original challenges. I'd like to challenge them all once again to beat that total by getting involved with #CaptainTom100. I am confident that they will once again rise to the challenge and come up with some novel ways to raise funds as well as celebrate the life of Captain Tom.
