Proudly Supporting The Captain Tom Foundation

We have been proudly supporting The Captain Tom Foundation since it's establishment in May 2020.

Whilst our Exact Fare Policy was in operation, all money received over the price of a journey was donated to The Foundation. 

September Captain Tom Fundraising


About The Captain Tom Foundation:

Captain Tom had always been active, even driving every day, until he slipped and fractured his hip two years ago.   The care and after-treatment he received then, and earlier through a cancer scare, left him eternally grateful to so many people in the NHS. 

When the coronavirus pandemic struck, Captain Tom wanted to give something back to the healthcare staff who looked after him and were putting their lives on the line during the pandemic.   His initial plan was to complete 100 laps of his garden, at 50 meters a time, before his hundredth birthday. He hoped to raise £1,000 for NHS charities.   Over £32 million later, the centenarian has inspired a whole nation, and drawn praise and admiration from all around the world. 

Determined to do more, Captain Tom and his family have identified causes close to their hearts which will benefit from The Captain Tom Foundation.   They are combating loneliness, supporting hospices and helping those facing bereavement.
