Join the challenge

Continue Captain Tom's legacy, mark his 101st birthday and raise funds to help older people in Solihull.


Starting on Friday 30 April (what would have been Captain Tom's 101st birthday) and finishing on Monday 3 May 2021.


Your home, your local area, online, or wherever you like!


People of all ages and abilities are invited to take part in the Captain Tom 100 challenge to raise money for UK charities. You can choose any challenge based around the number 100. It could be anything from baking 100 cakes to running 100 miles over the long weekend.

100 ideas to get started 

What else?

    • Take part in a challenge on your own or with friends and family (don't forget social distancing guidance).
    • Let us know what your challenge is and we will share it and help you fundraise!
    • Share your photos on social media tagging @ageuksolihull and using #CaptainTom100.
    • All the money raised for us will stay in Solihull to help us support local older people, many of whom have felt even more lonely and isolated and lost their confidence during recent lockdowns.
