Celebrate Captain Tom’s amazing achievements in a special event over his birthday weekend.


Having heard the wonderful plans Captain Tom’s family have introduced to celebrate all the fundraising he did last year.

First Step is also going to honour Captain Tom’s accomplishment by getting involved with the Captain Tom 100 celebrations.


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 then do it anytime, anywhere from Friday 30th April through to Bank Holiday Monday 3rd May.

Your 100 could be;

- walking 100 steps
- 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

Your 100 can be anything at all, inside or outside.

It’s your chance to do it your way!
