100 reasons to say thank you!

A big shout out this week to the amazing Team PALS, who’ve been inspired by the Captain Tom 100 challenge to take on an endurance challenge for us that’s so far raised nearly £500.

The fab four fundraisers and their personal assistants from PALS (Personal Assistants for Life Skills) cycled 100 laps of a 500m track on specially adapted bikes, swam 100 laps, pounded away for 100 treadmill minutes and took on 100 weight lifting reps - that’s some going! A huge thank you to Jodie, Nick and everyone who organised, took part and donated... and you can still support them here.

Team PALS are the first fantastic fundraisers to support us through the Captain Tom 100 initiative, where you’re encouraged to think up a 100 challenge for a charity of your choice; it can be anything you like – from walking 100 metres to baking 100 cakes or writing 100 letters.
