Captain Tom 100

Anywhere - 30/04/2021


When: 30 April - 3 May 2021
Where: Anywhere

Following the outpouring of heartfelt messages since 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 ellenor is proud to be inviting our supporters to take part. 


ellenor, like many other charities, has been hugely impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic. It’s had a huge effect, with the cancellation of thousands of fundraising events.

Captain Tom 100 offers ellenor supporters, of all ages and abilities, the 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

It’s so simple. All participants 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. 


Want to take part? Just follow these steps!

  1. Dream up your Captain Tom 100 challenge
  2. Set up a online fundraising page, either JustGiving or Virgin Money Giving 
  3. Ask your friends and family to sponsor you
  4. Complete your 100 challenge any time between Friday 30 April and Monday 3 May


Thank you for your support and have fun!
