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.”
