Inspiration

A Captain, a Sir, a gentleman and a Yorkshireman.


In the last (almost a) year … the very special and celebrated centenarian, Captain Sir Tom Moore, captured the attention of the world and inspired a grateful generation by transcending generations across the globe with his humility, wonderful wit & selfless acts of kindness through his incredible record-breaking fundraising. His spectacular legacy and considerable contribution to charities will be celebrated and remembered always.

It was a great honour for Welcome to Yorkshire to present Captain Sir Tom Moore with the first honorary Welcome to Yorkshire personal membership and also the prestigious Pride of Yorkshire Award in the summer of 2020 for Yorkshire Day
