Amplifon Awards For Brave Britons 2020

Captain Sir Thomas Moore, who won the hearts of the nation as he raised more than £35million for the NHS at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, has been named a finalist in the Amplifon Awards For Brave Britons 2020.

Captain Tom, as he is affectionately known, lives with his daughter Hannah’s family in Marston Moretaine, Bedfordshire. He reached the last four of the Coronavirus Hero category in global-hearing specialist Amplifon’s search for ‘The Best of British’.

The Amplifon Awards For Brave Britons are in their fifth year and celebrate remarkable people and pets. The winners will be judged by a panel including Falklands War Hero Simon Weston.

Set up in honour of Amplifon’s founder, Second World War hero Major Charles Holland, the awards recognise courage and achievement in the categories of:

  • Against All Odds
  • Service To Country
  • Charity Champion
  • Active Agers
  • Young Hero
  • Hero Pet
  • Celebrity Hero
  • Coronavirus Hero

The judges will choose an Overall Hero Award winner from the category winners.

The finals awards luncheon, hosted by BBC One Breakfast TV presenter Rachel Burden, will be a virtual ceremony on Tuesday, 13 October 2020.
