Captain Tom 100

30 Apr - 3 May 2021, Do it your way

You're invited to take on a challenge around the number 100, anytime and anywhere, over Captain Tom's birthday weekend. The funds you raise will go towards our work helping seafarers and their families in need.

    How to get started:

    • Think up your 100 challenge. It can be anything that involves the number 100 - hopping 100 metres, telling 100 jokes, running up 100 steps, baking 100 cakes, doing 100 press-ups or even hitting 100 golf balls!
    • Take on your 100 challenge any time between Friday 30 April and Monday 3 May
    • Click this link to create your fundraising page or to make a donation: https://sailorssociety.enthuse...
    • Share your 100 with friends and family on social media using #CaptainTom100 and tagging in @SailorsSociety - we'd love to share your post!

    Why help?

    We rely on seafarers, the key workers of the sea, to keep our cupboards stocked and world trade turning.

    Seafarers face extreme weather, the threat of piracy and intense loneliness every day of their nine-12 month contracts. The pandemic and global lockdowns have added to these stresses, with crews around the world stuck at sea, some for up to 17 months, unsure of when or how they will get home, while hundreds of thousands of others have been left unable to work.

    This is putting intolerable strain on seafarers’ mental health and finances, and we’ve seen an increase in calls for help.

    How you'll be helping

    Your funds will help us continue our vital work, such as:

    • dedicated 24-7 helplines for seafarers and their families
    • face-to-face and virtual chaplaincy and welfare support
    • training and support to help seafarers manage their mental health and wellbeing

    Captain Tom's simple message of hope, “Tomorrow will be a good day”, inspired millions around the world and brought comfort and joy to so many during the pandemic. Now it’s your turn to build on that legacy.
