Do it your way

Captain Tom 100

Do something 100 times in celebration of Captain Tom's 101st birthday

Captain Tom became a national treasure during the pandemic after completing 100 laps of his garden in celebration of his 100th birthday to raise money for charity. This year, to celebrate his 101st birthday, the nation is being asked to join together to do whatever they can, 100 times, to help raise vital funds for a charity of their choice.

From Friday 30 April to Monday 3 May, we’re challenging you to raise money for your local hospice by doing something, anything, 100 times. This could be running, jumping, eating, painting… anything you think would be fun or a challenge!

People of all ages can take part and the only requirement is that you must follow Government guidelines on gathering with friends and family, including social distancing.
