Following the outpouring of heartfelt messages since the death of Captain Sir Tom Moore, 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 Mahdlo is proud to be taking part.

We’re inviting you, your family and friends to take part in Captain Tom 100 from Friday 30 April to Bank Holiday Monday 3 May 2021 to celebrate Captain Sir Tom Moore’s amazing achievements and raise vital funds for Mahdlo.

Get involved

All you need to do is dream up your Captain Tom 100 – an activity of your choice based around the number 100 – and do it any time 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 – 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 Mahdlo and share your 100 on social media, using #CaptainTom100.
