Planting trees to remember Captain Sir Tom Moore
In February, we were contacted by Captain Sir Tom Moore’s daughter, Lucy. She wanted to set up a memorial project for her late father and hoped we would get involved. During the pandemic, Captain Sir Tom’s fundraising for the NHS and message of hope for a brighter tomorrow have been an inspiration for the nation. We were honoured to be asked, and we’re proud to play a part in remembering such a great man.

The family’s Trees for Tom initiative is a collaboration between two leading environmental charities: the Woodland Trust in the UK and global reforestation charity TreeSisters.org. Together, we’ll be able to plant trees in the UK and eight other countries around the world, including India, where Captain Sir Tom served in the Second World War.
