Kidney disease ends here.


Captain Tom 100

Captain Tom 100

Join #TeamKidney and the rest of the nation as we celebrate what would have been Captain Tom’s 101st birthday. Take on a challenge around the number 100; you could walk 100 laps of your garden like Captain Tom, eat 100 Maltesers, swim 100 laps or sing for 100 minutes. Dream up your own 100 challenge and do it your way!

Do it your way!

Thousands of vulnerable kidney patients have had no choice but to leave the safety of their homes to attend hospital for life-saving dialysis. Our researchers have been urgently working to find ways to help give kidney patients as much protection as possible from the virus.

By taking on your 100 challenge and continuing Captain Tom’s legacy, you are giving hope to kidney patients.

In the words of Captain Tom “tomorrow will be a good day”.
