After raising a staggering £32,795,105 for NHS Charities Together via his fundraising page, and celebrating his 100th birthday yesterday, Colonel Tom Moore is putting his feet up for a well-deserved rest!
It all started with a pledge to walk 100 laps of his garden to raise £1000 – and it snowballed from there. Not only has he raised a phenomenal amount of money for NHS Charities together, he has also bagged a number one hit with the release of “You’ll never walk alone” with Michael Ball and the NHS Voices of Care Choir, to raise yet more funds for the NHS.
In light of his tremendous achievements, he was given a fly past by an RAF Spitfire and Hurricane on his birthday, as well as being bestowed with the honorary promotion to Colonel by the MoD.
But the surprises didn’t end there for Colonel Moore’s 100th birthday celebrations: he was also made an honorary cricket player by former England captain Michael Vaughan!
Although Colonel Tom Moore’s JustGiving page has now closed to donations, people are still able to help provide essential support for NHS staff and volunteers by making a donation to the charity through their own JustGiving page by visiting https://nhscharitiestogether.justgiving.com
