The event takes place from Friday – which would have been Sir Tom’s 101st birthday – until Monday.
Sir Tom raised more than £32m for the NHS by walking 100 laps of his garden before his 100th birthday on April 30 last year. He died at Bedford Hospital on February 2 after testing positive for Covid-19.
Ms Ingram-Moore and her family plan to walk 100 laps of their garden in Marston Moretaine in Bedfordshire over the course of the weekend for their Captain Tom 100 challenge.
