Hannah Ingram-Moore, daughter of Captain Tom, to speak at Volunteer Expo Live

We are excited to announce Hannah Ingram-Moore will be speaking at Volunteer Expo Live, the national volunteering show hosted by Rotary!

Overnight, Hannah-Ingram Moore became an integral part of a heart-warming story that gripped the nation in 2020, as her late father, Captain Tom Moore, raised over £38 million for NHS Charities Together by walking laps of his garden.

In the darkness of the pandemic, Captain Tom’s incredible determination, will to make a difference, and hopeful outlook gripped not just those in the UK, but people around the globe.

Today, that spirit lives on through The Captain Tom Moore Foundation, which Hannah is a co-founder alongside her father and family.

Hannah led the creation of the Foundation’s vision and mission, and continues to promote the values embodied by her father.

Earlier this month, The Captain Tom Foundation announced a bold new vision for the future, to empower our older generations to live purposeful lives and revolutionise the way society views ageing.

Our wonderful older generation too often feels invisible, out of sight and out of mind, and this is exactly what The Captain Tom Foundation aims to tackle.”

The Foundation is devoting itself to ensuring that the country’s growing older generation feels seen, heard and most importantly, valued, by connecting generations together.

“My father moved in with my family and me when he was 87 years old.” Hannah reflects. “After a few weeks living with us, he quietly said to me with glistening eyes: I was invisible to the world until I moved in here, you have given me my visibility back.

“Our wonderful older generation too often feels invisible, out of sight and out of mind, and this is exactly what The Captain Tom Foundation aims to tackle.”

“Together, we will celebrate and empower our magnificent older generation and spark conversation, learning and compassion across different age groups.”

Captain Tom, pictured here completing his challenge on his 100th birthday, raised over £33 million by walking laps of his garden.

Captain Tom himself also had a personal connection to Rotary, an in particular March Rotary Club in Cambridgeshire, where he was a member in the 1970s.

We proudly showed Captain Tom on the cover of August 2020’s Rotary Magazine and had the pleasure of speaking with both him and Hannah about his life and achievements.
