The Captain Tom 100 Challenge!
April 30, 2021 @ 8:00 am - May 3, 2021 @ 5:00 pm
On 6 April 2020, Captain Tom Moore set off from his garden to raise money for our NHS heroes. 100 laps later, he’d raised an incredible £38.9 million for the NHS Covid-19 appeal.
Now it’s our turn to build on his legacy.
Friday 30 April would have been Captain Tom’s 101st birthday. To honour him and his amazing achievements, The Captain Tom Foundation are asking people of all ages and abilities to take part in the Captain Tom 100 Challenge and raise money for your chosen charity. We hope you choose us!
What’s the challenge all about?
Everyone – of all ages and abilities – is invited to take on a challenge around the number 100 any time and anywhere over Captain Tom’s birthday weekend, starting on Friday 30th April through to Bank Holiday Monday 3rd May. That could be walking 100 steps or running 100 metres, scoring 100 goals, baking 100 cakes, climbing 100 stairs, hopping 100 laps of the garden, writing a 100-word poem, flipping 100 pancakes – anything at all, inside or outside. It’s so simple. All you need to do is dream up your Captain Tom 100, fundraise or donate to the charity of your choice or The Captain Tom Foundation, and share your 100 on social media, using #CaptainTom100.
We hope you’ll choose to fundraise for Campden Home Nursing. All you need to do it click on ‘Fundraise for us’ to get your own challenge started.

The Covid-19 pandemic has had a catastrophic effect on charities, with the cancellation of thousands of events and the loss of billions in income. At a time when vulnerable members of society need them most, charities have had to cut services, furlough staff and some have even shut down. Captain Tom stepped up to help, taking on his famous walk to support the NHS Covid-19 appeal and inspiring millions to donate to the cause. Now the Captain Tom 100 is offering everyone the chance to raise funds for the charity of their choice or for The Captain Tom Foundation.
Let’s shout about it!
