About Sir Captain Tom Moore
On the run-up to his 100th Birthday, Captain Sir Tom Moore set himself a mission to walk 100 laps around his garden for NHS charities. Starting with the goal of raising just £1,000, Captain Sir Tom’s journey gained the support of the entire nation and he ended up exceeding his goal by an enormous amount and ended up raising £38.9 million!
As a second world war veteran, Captain Sir Tom served in India and became an instructor in Armoured Warfare. After the war had ended, he became the Managing Director of a concrete company. During his fundraising efforts, he also featured in a cover version of “You’ll Never Walk Alone” by Micheal Ball, and has recently launched his book “Tomorrow Will Be a Good Day.”
