Fundraise your way! 

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.

Captain Tom 100 offers our 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.

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.

Event details

Date: Friday 30 April to Monday 3 May

Location: Anywhere you like!

Fundraising target: Set your own goal

Why raise funds for Sussex Community NHS Charity?

The money raised will help us make grants to SCFT for the things core funding cannot buy, the big and little extras that help our amazing staff continue to provide our patients with truly outstanding care.

Every penny raised can help us enhance patient care by funding:

  • Improving the physical and mental health of patients, staff and volunteers;
  • Supporting staff development to help them provide excellent care;
  • Improving the equipment and facilities for the diagnosis and treatment of our patients;
  • Creating patient and family-friendly care environments;
  • Advancing our understanding through medical research.
