One Hundred Reasons to Hope


During the pandemic we have found hope in unexpected places, and these one hundred stories of hope – curated by Paralympian Danielle Brown MBE – show just how extraordinarily we can work together. We feature well-known stories such as Captain Tom’s walk, and Joe Wicks’ family workouts, as well as equally astonishing stories of everyday heroes, such as dancing binmen and fancy-dress postal workers, who brought joy to their neighbourhoods. These are stories of courage and community, of everyday kindness and perseverance. From the scientists racing to find a vaccine to frontline workers putting themselves at risk, from clapping together to celebrate keyworkers to breathing cleaner air, discover one hundred hopeful stories from an uncertain time.

“For all those finding it difficult: the sun will shine on you again and the clouds will go away. Remember that tomorrow will be a good day.”

Written by Paralympian Danielle Brown MBE, and introduced by Hannah Ingram-Moore

Captain Sir Tom Moore captured the hearts of a nation, as he walked 100 laps of his garden to raise money for the NHS. He wished to celebrate many other everyday heroes from this uncertain time, and with his blessing, these one hundred stories make a book of hope for the future.

Featuring well-known stories such as Joe Wicks’ family workouts, as well as stories of courage, community, everyday kindness and perseverance, such as:

Dancing binmen
Fancy-dress postal workers
Scientists racing to find a vaccine
Frontline workers who kept us all going

With lively and engaging illustrations, these are stories that will help you hope that tomorrow will be a good day.

Because hope starts with one small step . . .

Inspired by, and with the blessing of, one man and his walking frame, a £1 donation will be made to The Captain Tom Foundation for all hardback print sales in the UK and Ireland. The Captain Tom Foundation was created to inspire hope where it is needed most: combating loneliness, helping those facing bereavement, and supporting hospices – and this book celebrates the spirit of this amazing achievement.
