Captain Sir Tom Moore

Captain Tom 100

On what would have been Sir Captain Tom Moore’s 101st birthday, raise life-saving funds to fight hunger around the world.

It’s hard to believe that it’s almost been a year since Sir Captain Tom Moore walked 100 laps of his garden and raised millions of pounds to support the NHS.

This year, you can celebrate Sir Captain Tom Moore’s inspirational achievements and his life by taking on the 100 challenge in support of Action Against Hunger.

How does it work?

Between Friday 30 April to Monday 3 May we’re asking our supporters to fundraise for us by taking on the number 100 however they like. Everyone – of all ages and abilities – is welcome to take on the challenge anytime and anywhere over Captain Tom’s birthday weekend.

You can walk 100 steps or climb 100 stairs, bake 100 cookies or flip 100 pancakes, do 100 skips with a skipping rope or run 100 metres, write a 100 word poem or read 100 pages of a book. Whatever you want to do – make it as creative or simple as you want – inside or outside, it’s all up to you.

The only requirement of the challenge is that you follow government guidelines on exercise and social distancing at all times.

Why support Action Against Hunger?

Action Against Hunger treats more malnourished children than any other charity. We won’t give up until the world is free from hunger, but many more children need our help.

With your support, we can:

  • ensure access to healthy, nutritious food
  • provide clean water, good hygiene and health services
  • train more community health workers to treat malnourished children
  • inform more families about how to stay healthy and prevent more children from dying

Life-saving treatments are cheaply available and extremely effective. You can help us scale up our work to reach more children in need.
