Captain Tom Moore, Turning 100, Raises Over £13m for NHS Charities

For all those people finding it difficult at the moment, the sun will shine on you again and the clouds will go away. — Captain Tom Moore
Captain Tom Moore, Turning 100, Raises Over £13m for NHS Charities

A heartwarming, inspirational story (via the BBC):

A 99-year-old war veteran has walked 100 laps of his garden to raise more than £13m for the NHS.

Captain Tom Moore originally wanted to raise £1,000 for NHS Charities Together by completing laps of his garden before his 100th birthday.

But he smashed his target after more than 650,000 people made donations to his fundraising page.

As I write this, Captain Tom's JustGiving page is sitting at £13,687,803.28. He's 2461% above his target. It's just fantastic.

Well done, Sir.

Update [18th April, 2020]: Since I wrote this article, Captain Tom has now raised over £23,000,000.
