Celebrate Captain Tom’s Achievements in Special Fundraising Event!

Captain Tom 100 invites people all over the world to take on a challenge based around the number 100 to raise funds for charity 


Following the death of Captain Sir Tom Moore on 2 February, his family pledged to celebrate his life with an event that everyone, in the UK and around the world, could be involved in. That event is the Captain Tom 100 and Underground Lights is inviting our supporters to take part. 

Underground Lights like many other charities, has been hugely impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic. Captain Tom 100 offers Underground Lights supporters, of all ages and abilities, the opportunity to raise crucial funds for our charity, while at the same time celebrating Captain Tom’s generosity of spirit, the hope and joy he brought to millions, and his sense of fun.

How it works

All you need to do is dream up a Captain Tom 100 challenge based around the number 100 and do it at any time and anywhere over Captain Tom’s birthday weekend – starting on Friday 30 April through to Bank Holiday Monday 3 May. 

The challenge 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 – anything at all, inside or out. (Please remember to follow the Government’s current Covid restrictions.)

Once you have chosen your challenge, you can fundraise or donate to Underground Lights and share your 100 on social media, using #CaptainTom100.
