We’re inviting supporters to join the nation by taking on the Captain Tom 100 Challenge and raise money to help families going through childhood cancer in the East Midlands.
The challenge has been set up by The Captain Tom Foundation and is designed for people of all ages and abilities to take part.
All they have to do is choose their charity and pick a challenge based around the number 100.
Whatever your challenge we’d love it if you could fundraise for PASIC!
This could be baking 100 cupcakes, bouncing on the trampoline for 100 minutes, or walking 100 laps of your garden – just like Captain Tom!
CEO Louise says: “We were all inspired by Captain Tom’s incredible fundraising efforts for the NHS, especially as our work directly supports the NHS children’s cancer service. We’re so excited to be able to take part in this amazing event.
Our income from community fundraising fell off a cliff due to the pandemic, over the last year down by at least £50,000, but this is the perfect opportunity to give us the boost we need to help us meet increased needs for our service due to Covid.
“That’s why we’d be so grateful to anyone who chooses to take on the Captain Tom 100 Challenge for PASIC. By joining in The Challenge for PASIC, you can raise money so we can be here for children and young people with cancer, now and in the future.”
How do I join in?
Picked your challenge? Okay, now all you have to do is go to the Captain Tom 100 Challenge page on Just Giving, select PASIC as your chosen charity and start fundraising – ask friends/family/neighbours/work colleagues to kindly sponsor you. Make sure they know their donation will improve the lives of families going through childhood cancer.
Then between Friday 30 April and Monday 3 May, everyone’s invited to take on their challenge. So whether you’re walking 100 steps or 10,000 steps this bank holiday weekend is the time to do it!
