Happy Birthday Captain Tom
Captain Tom Moore, the Second World War veteran who has raised more than £25 million for the NHS by walking 100 laps of his garden, will celebrate his 100th birthday on April 30.
A Spitfire flypast is being planned to celebrate the big day, while children across the UK are making virtual birthday cards by way of thanks using the hashtag #makeacardfortom.
The former tank commander aimed to complete his challenge at his home in Bedfordshire before his birthday to support medics on the frontline of the coronavirus. Mr Moore’s initial fundraising target of £1,000 was met within 24 hours, and he went on to raise the incredible sum for the NHS Charities Together organisation.
