Captain Tom 100 Challenge

Friday 30 April - Monday 3 May

Across the UK

Take on the challenge

Join #TeamNSPCC for the Captain Tom 100

Last year Captain Tom united the nation as he took on 100 laps of his garden for charity. To celebrate his legacy, take on your own 100 challenge on Captain Tom's birthday weekend!

On average, 100 Children contact Childline every 40 minutes. With your help, we can keep fighting for every childhood. We want to answer every call, reach every child who needs us and keep adapting to whatever challenges this year throws at us.

Join us and take on the Captain Tom 100 challenge anytime between Friday 30 April and Monday 3 May. Whether you walk up 100 steps, bake 100 cakes or dance for 100 minutes, you'll help make sure we’re still here for children.
