The girls are hoping to complete the challenge on April 30, as this would have been Captain Tom’s 101st birthday, as well as the first anniversary of his 100 lap challenge.
St Catherine’s Hospice provide palliative and end-of-life care and support for people across Central Lancashire through specialised services at the hospice, and in people’s own homes.
It costs £5m to run the charity each year.
