Captain Tom launches new fundraising appeal to do the Inca Trail
CAPTAIN Tom Moore has asked Britain to sponsor him on his latest charity drive to walk the Inca Trail in Peru.
The centenarian, who has raised £39 million for the NHS, has launched a new JustGiving page hoping to raise £7,000 for he and his new girlfriend, Lucie Donlan from series five of Love Island, to do the 25-mile trail together.
He said: “It was alright when I started, but I must confess I’m a little bored of the back garden now.
“So I was reading through some congratulatory emails, saw one from Lucie who seems a wonderful lady, and we got to chatting. She really has that wonderful spark of youth.
“Sadly this ‘Love Island’ she comes from is off-limits, but we decided we’d like to take our next adventure together and where better than trekking through the Andes? I’m sure Britain won’t let me down.”
Sponsor Sue Traherne said: “Bloody hell. It’s always the same. You sponsor them once and they expect a free ride forever. He can stick his Machu Picchu up his arse.”
