Take on the Captain Tom 100 Challenge

Captain Tom’s incredible fundraising challenge touched the nation. His story had a massive impact on people from all walks of life, including our very own superstar fundraiser, Tony Hudgell.

Captain Tom 100 - what's your 100? Support Evelina London

Inspired by Captain Tom, the six-year-old set out to walk 10km for Evelina London. His parents Paula and Mark thought he would raise £500. Tony’s first steps on his newly fitted prosthetic legs would take him on a £1.5 million journey towards making a long-lasting impact for Evelina London.

Nearly one year on, Tony is taking on a new challenge to honour the man who inspired him and is challenging you to do the same.

Join Tony and take on the Captain Tom 100 challenge for Evelina London!

All you need to do is dream up a challenge based around the number 100.

Walk 100 laps of your garden just like Captain Tom, swim 100 lengths or sing for 100 minutes. There are endless ways for you to take on the challenge.

Make the challenge your own and join Tony and all our supporters between Friday 30 April and Monday 3 May.
