Captain Tom 100 Challenge – 100 Question Quiz!

 In 5 to 13 year olds, News and events

On Friday 30th April the 5s to 13s Befriending families, volunteers and trustees accepted the ‘Captain Tom 100 Challenge – Do it Your Way’ and participated in a 100 Question Quiz, with the aim of raising £100 for Friends of the Family.

The children and adults who joined in were provided with a variety of questions and quests to complete in just one hundred minutes. There were rounds on nature, numbers, Disney, movie theme tunes, children’s book characters, catch phrases, and a three minute quest was set for everyone to bring back a household item for every letter in CAPTAIN TOM’s name! The quiz concluded with a special round that was all about the special man himself who raised an amazing £32,000,000 for NHS Charities Together last year walking 100 laps of his garden.

All the children and adults rose to the challenge and the marathon quiz was completed with just five minutes to spare!

A really big thank you goes to everyone who participated in this special Family Fun Friday event and a very special thank you goes to all the generous donors who helped raise a fantastic £240 for Friends of the Family from this event.

Sam Hunt, 5s to 13s Befriending Manager said “Thanks ever so much to everyone who joined in with the 100 Question Quiz. It was definitely a challenge but I am so pleased that the children and adults had the stamina to go the distance and honor such a lovely gentleman that was Captain Tom! It was great to be able to participate in the Captain Tom 100 Challenge and to do it our way on our 6th Family Fun Friday.”
