Final salute to Captain Sir Tom Moore

Final salute to Captain Sir Tom Moore

We extend our deepest condolences to his family and hope that their loving memories of their familial patriarch will continue to console them in their time of loss.

On 16 April 2020, Captain Sir Tom Moore completed his 100th lap around his garden in Bedfordshire; he had intended to raise £1,000 before his 100th birthday to support the National Health Service in the United Kingdom when the Covid-19 pandemic first ravaged the nation.  Little did he know that his honourable goal would soon win the nation’s heart and raise more than £30 million by the time he celebrated his 100th birthday on 30 April.

Captain Sir Tom was a much-needed beacon of unity and hope in a time of great uncertainty.  He showed us that we all have a choice to turn away from negativity or helplessness by channelling our efforts to wholesome acts and intentions.  Dubbed a “national inspiration”, the centenarian’s valiant efforts earned him a knighthood by the Queen in July 2020 in a special ceremony at Windsor Castle.

The Queen led tributes to Captain Sir Tom, “recognising the inspiration he provided for the whole nation and others across the world”.

On 2 February 2021, Captain Sir Tom succumbed to Covid-19 and passed away peacefully with his daughters by his side.  We join the people of the United Kingdom and his family in honouring the memory of a national hero who inspired millions through his life and actions.  May his words of positivity continue to remind all of us that hope is never lost – “Please remember, tomorrow will be a good day.”  May Captain Sir Tom Moore rest in Peace.
