Following the outpouring of tributes and heartfelt messages since the passing of Captain Sir Tom Moore, his family pledged to celebrate his life with an event that everyone in the UK and around the world could be involved in. That event is the Captain Tom 100 challenge and Inspire Youth Zone is proud to be taking part.

We’re inviting you, your family, friends and colleagues to take part in Captain Tom 100 from Friday, 30th April to Bank Holiday Monday, 3rd May to celebrate Sir Captain Tom Moore’s amazing achievements and raise funds to support thousands local children and young people who call Chorley home. 


All you need to do is be creative and dream up your Captain Tom 100 – an activity of your choice based around the number 100 – and do it any time and anywhere from Friday, 30th April to Bank Holiday Monday.

Your challenge could be walking 100 steps or running 100 metres, scoring 100 goals, baking 100 cakes, climbing 100 stairs, hopping 100 laps, drinking 100 glasses of water, flipping 100 pancakes – anything at all, inside or outside. It’s your chance to do it your way! 

Remember to drop us a line at or ring 01257 228888 and let us know what you have planned. 


Once you’ve decided what you’re doing, you can fundraise or donate to Inspire and share your 100 challenge on social media, using #CaptainTom100.
