Charitable Travel Fund

Charitable Travel, Captain Tom 100, IAG Loyalty Avios

We’re inviting you, your family and friends to take part in Captain Tom 100 from Friday 30 April to Bank Holiday Monday 3 May 2021 to celebrate Captain Sir Tom Moore’s amazing achievements. Set your challenge and raise vital funds for Charitable Travel Fund and you could even win 100,000 Avios points to put towards your next holiday! 

Friday 30 April would have been Captain Sir Tom’s 101st birthday and is the one-year anniversary of the extraordinary celebrations that followed the conclusion of his fundraising walk that raised an incredible £38.9 million for the NHS.

Celebrate his life
Following the outpouring of heartfelt messages since Captain Sir Tom’s death on 2 February this year, his family pledged to celebrate his life with an event that everyone around the world could get involved in to celebrate his generosity, hope and sense of fun – the Captain Tom 100.

Get involved
All you need to do is commit to your Captain Tom 100 – an activity of your choice based around the numbers 100 – and do it any time and anywhere from Friday 30 April through to Bank Holiday Monday 3 May.

Take on the #CharitableTravelFundChallenge and commit to climbing the height of one of the world’s most wonderful sights, 100 times! Whether you climb the Eiffel Tower 100 times, up and down your stairs at home, or jog the equivalent distance of 100 times up and down the Burj Khalifa – set your challenge and own it! Download the Challenge Pack for inspiration.

Alternatively, your 100 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 outside. It’s your chance to do it your way!

Fundraise or donate
Once you’ve decided what you’re doing, you can fundraise or donate to Charitable Travel Fund via JustGiving and share your 100 on social media, using #CaptainTom100 and #CharitableTravelFundChallenge.

We hope you’ll join the thousands of people around the world taking part in Captain Tom 100 and spread his message of hope while raising much-needed funds for Charitable Travel Fund.
