Tom Daley OBE

30th August 2023

2023 Shortlisted Nominee
Celebrity of the Year Award

Olympic gold medallist and double World Champion Tom Daley is the most decorated British diver of all time. He is an avid supporter and patron of Switchboard which is an LGBT+ charity helpline in the UK and has raised over £1m for comic relief. The money raised will also help support vital life changing work, tackling issues including homelessness, domestic abuse, poverty and mental health problems in the UK and around the world. Tom tackled a 6-mile row, 1,600m open water swim and a 253 mile cycle, finishing with a 30-mile ultramarathon. He launched an LGBTQ+ Pride-themed clothing collection 'Made with Love' to raise money for queer refugees and asylum seekers. The diver was awarded an OBE in 2022 for services to sport, LGBT+ rights and charity work, and pledges to use his OBE to make the Commonwealth a better place for LGBT people.
