Job Description

Captain Tom Foundation

We are looking for three Trustees with professional experience that can help us during our embryonic stage to become an organisation that is truly diverse, equitable and inclusive and where everyone belongs.

Who we are

 

The Ingram Moore family were at the centre of the global fundraising phenomenon that was the late Captain Sir Tom Moore. A simple gesture of sponsoring Tom to walk laps of the garden led to £38.9 million being raised for the NHS, with donations from over 163 countries. These donations went direct to NHS Charities Together and the Foundation launched several months later to continue his legacy.

The Foundation will build on his actions that brought hope, a sense of purpose and a very much needed light at the end of the tunnel. Hannah and family have been an integral part of the fundraising effort, making over 4,700 media appearances across the world in just 19 months. The subsequent ‘Captain Tom 100 campaign attracted attention from 105 countries, had a reach of 12 8 billion and raised a further £14 million for charities, including The Captain Tom Foundation.

We’re now starting a revolution that will allow our growing older generation to feel seen, heard and most importantly, valued by society. We will support, celebrate and empower them. We will give them a voice to share their wisdom and ensure they live a purposeful life. Specifically we are lobbying to support an ageing population and workforce, changing the perception of older people and showcasing the benefits of a multi-generational society, helping older generations navigate an increasingly digital world, and working across generations to understand needs and areas for support.

And we’d love you to consider being part of this.
