'Captain Tom' on wheels

Inspired by the actions of (slightly older) Captain Tom Moore, our own “Captain Tom” Basford didn’t want to be outdone, and decided to get “on his bike” to raise money for charities involved in Covid-19.

To date, Tom, sometimes accompanied by his son, Alfie, and daughter, Olivia, has cycled more than 200 miles to and from work, raising thousands of pounds for Care Workers and the NHS, and Hospitality Action. He’s not even allowed himself to be deterred by the odd puncture along the way!
