Help build a lasting legacy of hope
Friday 30 April would have been Sir Captain Tom's 101st birthday and one year since he completed his 100 famous laps. Captain Tom raised £38.9 million for the NHS and his simple message of hope "Tomorrow will be a good day" resonated with people all over the world. What he did, his extraordinary achievement, will never be forgotten.
