    Last April, Captain Sir Tom Moore raised an astounding £38.9 million for the NHS Covid-19 appeal by walking 100 laps around his garden. To honour him and his legacy of incredible achievements, the Captain Tom 100 is taking place on the weekend of 30th April 2021 (which marks what would have been his 101st birthday). Everyone is invited to take on a challenge based around the number 100 anytime and anywhere across Captain Tom’s birthday weekend (30th April – 3rd May) to raise money for good causes. As the weather’s getting warmer and we ease further out of lockdown, many people will be looking to get busy fundraising for the charities they care about. To involve your supporters in this campaign, all you need to do is:   Copy this fundraising signup link:https://localgiving.org/fundraisers  Add the link to your website and email signature. Share it on your organisation’s social media accounts and in your email newsletters. Encourage your supporters to celebrate Captain Tom’s life and legacy by taking part in the Captain Tom 100 challenge on behalf of your organisation. Remind supporters to include “Captain Tom 100” in their fundraiser title when setting up their page so that they’re included on our campaign page. Ask your supporters to share their fundraising page links, photos, and videos on social media with the #CaptainTom100 hashtag. Our blog post here gives some great inspiration for creative 100-based challenges - feel free to share it!    Thank your fundraisers directly via the ‘My Fundraisers’ section within your Localgiving account to spur them on to success! Make sure to thank your new and returning donors in the ‘My Donations’ menu too. Don’t forget to give a shout out to your fundraisers on social media by sharing their page, tagging @Localgiving and using the #CaptainTom100 hashtag.   Localgiving will be including an additional £100 prize for the fundraiser with the highest number of unique donors. The prize will go directly to the top fundraiser’s selected charity so make sure to share your fundraising signup link and your supporters’ pages on your website, on social media, and in your email newsletters right through until May 4th! If your organisation is not yet registered with Localgiving and would like to join and participate, you can do so here. The COVID-19 pandemic has had such a devastating effect on many charities, leading to the cancellation of thousands of events and so much financial loss. During this devastating time, Captain Tom took on his walking challenge to offer his support and, as a result of this, inspired the world. You can see our leaderboard of participating fundraisers and donate to them here.
