Captain Sir Tom Moore passed away on January 2nd 2021.
In a cruel twist of fate, having lived to the age of 100 years, Sir Tom succumbed to COVID-19 and pneumonia, after fighting to raise nearly £33m for NHS Charities Together.
About NHS Charities Together
These vital funds and services are above and beyond what the NHS alone can provide, touching lives and making a huge difference to millions of people when they are at their most vulnerable.
I will forever remember Captain Sir Tom Moore as an inspiration, role model and a true beacon of light.
