PUPILS at a Winchester school showcased their knowledge in a challenge to pay tribute to Captain Tom.

Youngsters at Stanmore Primary decided to build on his legacy and take part in the Captain Tom 100 challenge.

Classes were challenged to read for 100 minutes and to take part in linked maths and writing activities whilst raising money to support his foundation.

The challenge took place from May 1, on the day that would have been Sir Captain Tom Moore’s 101st birthday, to pay tribute to the inspirational fundraiser.

The Army veteran raised almost £33 million for NHS charities by walking 100 laps of his garden before he turned 100 last year during the first wave of coronavirus.
