Show Notes

In the seventh episode of season four of the Her Spirit podcast  BBC Triathlon presenter Annie Emmerson and Her Spirit co-founder Mel Berry talk to Hannah Ingram-Moore the daughter of Captain Sir Moore.

Overnight, Hannah Ingram-Moore became an integral part of 'The World's Greatest Philanthropic Lightning Strike' that saw her late father, Captain Tom Moore, raise £38.9m in three and a half weeks, with donations from 163 countries.

In the darkness of the pandemic, the event became a global voice for era-defining change, it offered a humanitarian connection that transcended boundaries to make a difference by representing the values of Honesty, Determination, Inclusivity, Integrity and Hope.

Proven to produce exceptional results in challenging environments, Hannah has been bestowed two 'Woman of the Year' awards, jointly received the George H.W Bush Points of Light Award and was asked to become a WHO Ambassador.

Hannah has so much sound advice around being resilient! "There is no perfection. You only have to be responsible for yourself and your own happiness. No one else can make you happy, Love yourself and believe in yourself and shield yourself from negative people"

She leads The Captain Tom Foundation and is also an acclaimed Business Strategist and Growth Expert who drives positive change around gender equality and representation.

As well as running her own successful business, Hannah and her family have been honoured to be at the centre of the fundraising phenomenon that was her late father, Captain Sir Tom Moore. A simple gesture of her family sponsoring him to walk round the garden led to £38.9 million being raised for the NHS. Hannah continues to be an integral part of the fundraising effort, making just under 4,000 media appearances across the world.

Along with her father and her family, Hannah created The Captain Tom Foundation so they could continue to raise funds and shine a light on the values held dear to her father, including Hope and Kindness. Hannah led the creation of The Foundation's brand, vision, mission and values, selected its Trustees and ensured charity regulation and governance was adhered to. Through The Foundation, Hannah and her family are proactively raising awareness of the significance of different generations working and living together, this subsequently led to the WHO creating a global conversation and webinar on Ageism.

Since Captain Sir Tom passed away in February 2021, Hannah has continued to raise further funds in his honour including the creation of the 'Captain Tom 100' campaign, launched on what would have been his 101st birthday in April. This encouraged the nation to raise over £1m in just three days and has given corporates, charities and individuals the opportunity to engage with others, have fun and raise much needed funds. People around the world took on their 100 challenge and the campaign reached over 12.8bn.
