Captain Tom is on a mission to get as many people as possible walking, talking, spreading hope and easing loneliness. Join Captain Tom’s army of hope now.
Walk with Tom
Captain Sir Tom is on a mission to encourage everyone to walk– at home, outside, in the garden, in the park – anywhere at all. Walk to help yourself and keep your mind happy. Talk to help someone else – give them a call. Together let’s spread hope and ease loneliness.
Captain Tom and family hope this initiative will continue to unite the nation, helping everyone face these challenging times together;
“I would like us all to stand shoulder to shoulder (metaphorically!). Let’s try not to get downhearted, we will get through this, whatever is thrown at us and together we can ensure that tomorrow will be a good day.” - Captain Sir Tom.
His previous fundraiser reached well beyond his own charity walk. His actions inspired the fundraising of many more millions of pounds, throughout the world. Now, Captain Tom is handing the baton over to you!
If you want to walk 100 laps (like Tom did), or do a marathon - fantastic! If you want to walk 100 metres, great! If your toddler walks their first steps, amazing!
Take action today and become part of Captain Tom’s army.
