Today Captain Tom Moore celebrates his 100th birthday.
Only a few weeks ago, we had never even heard of this amazing gentleman who now is mentioned daily in the media. By walking laps of his garden, the war veteran has raised more than £29m for the NHS.
Captain Tom Moore’s 100th birthday will be marked with an RAF flypast, the transport secretary has announced.
They have also urged people “to follow Captain Tom’s disciplined example and not gather to watch the flypast but continue following guidelines on social distancing”.
Happy Birthday Captain Tom!
