About the 100 Challenge

Thomas Moore (born 30 April 1920), informally known as Captain Tom, is a former British Army officer. For his war service, Moore was awarded three medals:

  • 1939–1945 Star.

  • Burma Star.

  • War Medal 1939–1945.

The World War II veteran had hoped to raise £1,000 on JustGiving when he started walking 100 laps of his garden - however thanks to the generosity of the public he has raised in excess of £29m to date! 

In partnership with Give as you Live Donate the Stable Family Home Trust is getting involved and keeping active by inviting you to take part in the 100 challenge, to honour Captain Tom's birthday and raise money and awareness in these difficult times.

By taking part, raising funds or by donating you're helping SFHT support people with learning disabilities lead more independent lives.


Give as you Live Donate were so inspired by Captain Tom’s mammoth fundraising last week, that they've created a simple fundraising challenge for supporters to do at home and raise vital funds – the 100 challenge, to celebrate Tom’s 100th birthday on Thursday 30th April.

The aim is to do partake in a challenge involving the number 100!  In our case, 100x 25m laps between exercises!  3 reps to represent each of Captain Tom's medals.
