Trees For Tom

Trees For Tom

April 2021

The last year has seen our lives turned upside down.  My father talked to me about our work places changing forever and the impact of this on young people. He like other Grandparents around the world worried about his Grandchildren and what the future holds.  

Since my father passed away www.treesfortom.org has been set up until the end of the year to celebrate his life and those who have lost their lives in the Covid 19 outbreak. 


Please ask your communities, your street your families to collectively plant 100 trees to celebrate my father's life and the loved ones you have lost. One tree costs 40p 100 trees costs £40.00. A simple gesture of planting trees will give a lasting legacy that will help mitigate climate change. Please do all you can.

Lucy and Tom Teixeira his eldest grandson.




February 2021

Our fathers funeral took place at the weekend Saturday 27th February, a very special day as the army pulled out all the stops to give him a great send off, our family recognise the life lessons that he has left us, and we experienced he really was a special man. His message of "Tomorrow will be a good day" will be remembered forever. He wants his grave to read "I told you I was old"!


We have been asked by friends and family how they can do something other than cards and cut flowers, it was this idea that sparked me to offer trees in his name.


Our father had a lifetime of being in nature and the natural world. He has inspired the world in the last year, bringing hope for the future. He, like every Grandparent, saw the future of the world through his Grandchildren and he voiced his concern about what the future holds. 

He was a man of action as everyone knows, and so, in tribute to his life, his achievements and influence; with thoughts of his Grandchildren and everyone's Grandchildren around the world, his message of hope, and that the sun would always shine, we would like to offer the chance to plant a tree.

“A local poet wrote a gorgeous poem about Sir Captain Tom and my kids at Sheffield Performing Arts recorded it, it was so well received and we were featured in the paper, played on the radio and at the Sheff Utd/Liverpool match and over 30K views... just amazing... one lady was so inspired that she knitted us a lovely Capt Tom doll.... we have raffled it off and it raised £130. I love how my kids from age 3-17 were so moved and touched by this amazing man and being part of this project is something they will always remember. Thank you for inspiring all generations. Cops xx”

“Captain Sir Tom Moore inspired me and kept me going through a hard year. I always loved to see his gentle smile and twinkling eyes when he appoeared on tv and I miss him. I think he reminded me of my grandmother who was also an inspirational character and whom I miss everyday. When Captain Tom passed away, I felt I’d lost her all over again. Thank you for being the sweet, kind and generous soul who kept the nation together. Rest well Sir xxx”
