Following the outpouring of heartfelt messages since the death of Captain Sir Tom Moore on 2nd 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 Vista is proud to be inviting our supporters to take part. 

Vista, like many other charities, has been hugely impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic. It’s had a catastrophic effect, with the cancellation of fundraising events, our fundraised income has fallen dramatically at a time when the people we help need our support more than ever.

Captain Tom 100 offers Vista 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.

How it works

It’s so simple. All participants need to do is dream up a Captain Tom 100 challenge based around the number 100 and do it at any time and anywhere over Captain Tom’s birthday weekend – starting on Friday 30 April through to Bank Holiday Monday 3 May. 

The challenge could be walking 100 steps or running 100 metres, scoring 100 goals, baking 100 cakes, climbing 100 stairs, hopping 100 laps of the garden, building 100 sandcastles, writing a 100-word poem, flipping 100 pancakes – anything at all, inside or out. 

Once supporters have chosen their challenge, they can fundraise or donate to Vista and share their 100 on social media, using #CaptainTom100.

Vista's Community Fundraiser, Paul Taylor said: 
"We’re honoured to be part of the Captain Tom 100 campaign taking place at the end of this month.We would love it if you could get your school or community club to take part with you and raise money in aid of Vista. There will be people from all over the world taking part, using the incredible spirit of Captain Tom to raise money for the charities close to their hearts."
