Freddie Joins Captain Tom's Fundraising Army and Raises £600
Inspired by Captain Sir Tom Moore, Freddie P (age 8), joined the nation’s army of fundraisers and took on the #CaptainTom100 challenge baking and selling cupcakes over the weekend to mark what would have been Captain Tom’s 101st birthday on 30th April.
The first 100 cakes quickly sold out so Freddie set to work baking more and ended up baking closer to 200 which he sold to neighbours, family and friends and at Knowle Village Cricket Club and Silhillians RUFC. Having smashed his original fundraising target, and ultimately raising an incredible £600, he decided to split his earnings equally between The Captain Tom Foundation and the school’s nominated charity Solihull Carer’s Trust.
