Captain Tom’s 100 Challenge

April 30th – May 3rd 2021

This challenge is 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.

Once supporters have chosen their challenge, they can fundraise or donate to Action Foundation and share their 100 on social media, using #CaptainTom100

Support vulnerable refugees this summer by throwing an Action Foundation Garden Party Fundraiser at home. If you’ve spent lockdown perfecting your garden, here’s a fun excuse to show it off!

From decorations to party games, we’ll support you with everything you need to hold your own garden party!

Afternoon tea in the garden, Pimms party or children’s tea party – this fundraiser is for everyone!

We’ve not been able to hold many events over the last year, so we’re hoping our superstar fundraisers (that’s YOU) can make the most of the remaining six weeks of summer.
