Captain Tom 100
Celebrate Captain Tom’s amazing achievements in a special event over his birthday weekend.
Friday 30 April would have been Captain Sir Tom’s 101st birthday. It is also the one-year anniversary of the extraordinary celebrations that followed his fundraising walk, which raised an incredible £38.9 million for the NHS.
Celebrate his life
Following the outpouring of heartfelt messages since Captain Sir Tom’s death on 2 February this year, his family pledged to celebrate his life with an event that everyone around the world could get involved in to celebrate his generosity, hope and sense of fun – the Captain Tom 100.
All you need to do is dream up your Captain Tom 100 – an activity of your choice based around the numbers 100 – and do it anytime and anywhere from Friday 30 April through to Bank Holiday Monday 3 May.
Your 100 could be:
- walking 100 steps or running 100 metres
- scoring 100 goals
- baking 100 cakes
- climbing 100 stairs
- hopping 100 laps of the garden
- building 100 sandcastles
- writing a 100-word poem
- flipping 100 pancakes
- telling 100 jokes
Anything at all – inside or outside. It’s your chance to do it your way!
Fundraise or donate
Once you’ve decided what you’re doing, you can fundraise or donate to United Response and share your 100 on social media, using #CaptainTom100.
We hope you’ll join the thousands of people around the world taking part in Captain Tom 100 and spread his message of hope, while raising funds to help support people with disabilities, autism and mental health needs.
