Tomorrow Will Be A Good Day [9780241486108]

(2 reviews) Write a Review

Captain Tom Moore is an inspiration.

At the height of the Covid-19 pandemic in early April this ninety-nine-year-old Second World War veteran came up with a big idea: he'd walk laps of his garden to raise money for the NHS.

Despite using a walking frame as well as recent treatment for cancer and a broken hip, he was determined to hit £1,000 by his 100th birthday on 30th April.

You've seen him on the television walking the length of his garden. A frail elderly man, doing his bit at a time of crisis. But he wasn't always like this.

Where did he come from? Where was he made?

From a childhood in the foothills of the Yorkshire Dales, Tom Moore grew up in a loving family, which wasn't without its share of tragedy. It was a time of plenty and of want. When the storm clouds of the Second World War threatened, he raised his hand and, like many of his generation, joined up to fight.

His war would take him from a country he had never left to a place which would steal his heart, India, and the Far East, to which he would return many years later to view the sight he had missed first time around: the distant peak of Everest.

Captain Tom's story is our story.

It is the story of our past hundred years here in Britain.

It's a time which has seen so much change, yet when so much has stayed the same: the national spirit, the can-do attitude, the belief in doing your best for others.

In this rich, happy life packed with incident you will encounter time and again the curiosity, courage and generosity that saw Captain Tom look around him during our current crisis and decide that something had to be done . . .

 

AUTHOR: Captain Tom Moore was born in Yorkshire in 1920. With the outbreak of World War Two he enlisted in the British Army and served throughout the war. He holds two Guinness World Records, for the largest sum ever raised by an individual charity walk, and for being the oldest person ever to have a number one hit single. He lives with his family in Bedfordshire. He set up the Captain Tom Foundation to help people help other people.
