Captain Sir Tom Moore Rally Taxi
SSAFA, the Armed Forces charity, has been providing lifelong support to our Forces and their families since 1885. Last year our teams of volunteers and employees helped more than 85,000 people in need, from Second World War veterans to young men and women who have served in more recent conflicts, and their families. SSAFA understands that behind every uniform is a person. We are here for that person – any time they need us, in any way they need us, for as long as they need us.
SSAFA helps the armed forces community in a number of ways, though our focus is on providing direct support to individuals in need of physical or emotional care.
Addiction, relationship breakdown, debt, homelessness, post-traumatic stress, depression and disability are all issues that can affect our members of our Armed Forces community. Many of these problems only become apparent when an individual has to leave their life in the Forces and join ‘Civvy Street’. SSAFA is committed to helping our brave men and women overcome these problems, and rebuild their lives.
Captain Sir Thomas Moore, popularly known as "Captain Tom", was a British Army officer and centenarian, known for his achievements raising money for charity in the run-up to his 100th birthday during the COVID-19 pandemic.
This amazing man raised over £33 Million pounds for the NHS!!!
Tom served in India and the Burma campaign during the Second World War.
Later became an instructor in armoured warfare and after the war, he worked as managing director of a concrete company and was an avid motorcycle racer.
RIP Tom, you where an inspiration to us all.
The main symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19) are:
a high temperature – this means you feel hot to touch on your chest or back (you do not need to measure your temperature)
a new, continuous cough – this means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours (if you usually have a cough, it may be worse than usual)
a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste – this means you've noticed you cannot smell or taste anything, or things smell or taste different to normal
If you have any of these symptoms, get a test to check if you have coronavirus and stay at home until you get your result.
WE NEED YOUR HELP!
In respect of the sad passing of Sir Capt Tom Moore, we (Veterans Banger Rally) we would like to ask ANYONE with the facilities to print off stickers of Sir Captain Tom Moore.
We are going to completely cover one of our rally cars in Captain Sir Tom Moore Stickers and take him on the rally with us, one last adventure for a fellow veteran and to honour this wonderful gentleman that has been taken from us aged 100.
If you or someone you know is willing donate stickers of Sir Tom in any size or willing to do any for us at cost price, we would like to hear from you.
The Veterans Banger Rally is an event set up by veterans for veterans and even though the event will not be until September of this year, we think it would be a fantastic idea to help keep his memory alive.
