Captain Tom Moore - Little People, BIG DREAMS

Spring 2020. As his 100th birthday is approaching, he decides to walk 100 laps in his garden, having recovered from an accident. And then another battle, no less terrifying, begins. The fight against an invisible enemy. He decides to raise 1,000 pounds for the ones who sacrifice their lives daily to save us. The healthcare workers, the doctors and the nurses, the tireless angels on our shoulders. And he raises 30,000,000 pounds, winning one more battle. But the enemy strikes again, vicious and stealthy.

2 February 2021. Captain Tom Moore departs for the place of angels, leaving behind an invaluable legacy of courage, solidarity and the need to never give up.

The sun will shine on you again and the clouds will go away.’’

   Captain Sir Thomas Moore
