Story

During the Covid-19 pandemic Captain Tom took on his famous walk to support the NHS Covid-19 appeal and inspired millions to donate more.

In memory of Captain Tom many people will be completing the Captain Tom 100 challenge to raise money for charities all over the country and I want to do my part.

As a keen walker I have always enjoyed being outside and you’ll often find me ambling through the countryside. I have completed walks for many different reasons in the past including raising money for charities. This time I am walking 100k in 5 days in memory of Captain Tom while raising money for two causes close to heart. Any money raised will be split evenly between both in memory of Captain Tom.

The first is The Great North Air Ambulance who bring pioneering pre-hospital care to the scene, rescuing hundreds of severely injured or ill patients every year. They are not NHS-funded and are there for every one of us.

The second is for is my local village primary school who despite budget restrictions have ensured all children could access online provision remotely. They are currently raising money for essential computing equipment and it would be great to support them.

I will start walking on Friday 30th April (which would have been Captain Tom’s 101st birthday) and will complete 100k by Tuesday 4th May. Any sponsors will be greatly appreciated by myself, my chosen charity and my local primary school.

Thank you in advance.

    That’s 100k walked in 5 days... I was asked how can you walk 100k? It’s easy put one foot in front of the other and repeat 135,184 times, no problem. Thank you all for supporting me. Malcolm x

    Managed to get out for a walk this morning before the weather turned nasty. Only 18k walked today which is the lowest daily total so far. It was definitely the wettest afternoon walk! A total of 94.9k and only one day to go. Thank you for all of your kind donations. Malcolm x

    Today I have walked twice, with a total of 24.4k. I started with 10.9k this morning and then added a further 13.5k this afternoon. We were followed on our afternoon walk by Maggie who would not go home and will be in lots of trouble. We dropped her off at the next farm, so she could be collected. She’ll be in the bad books and the bath tonight. 76.9k completed in three days before the weather turns nasty tomorrow. Thank you all for your kind donations. Malcolm x
