Thumbs up 99-year-old army veteran, Captain Tom, raises £6 million for the NHS

Tom Moore aimed to raise £1,000 by completing 100 laps of his Bedfordshire garden by Thursday.

"Every penny that we get, they [the NHS] deserve every one of it," he said, as the total exceeded the £5m mark.

Meanwhile, a school girl has started a campaign for children to make cards for his 100th birthday on 30 April.

Reegan Davies, 8, from Port Talbot, Wales, has set a goal of making 1,500 virtual cards.

Big congratulations to him and a very good cause.

UPDATE: Now approaching the £15M mark!

Just read about that in our paper today.

Also read: Mystery Donor pays it forward.

Mayor Jeff Lillie in Earlham, Iowa U.S.A population 1,450 says a mystery person bought every family (didn’t want to leave anyone out) three $50 gift cards each from three businesses in town to be mailed out. Each family would get $150 in gift cards. Total cost of 1,647 gift cards: $82,350. What a generous thing to do.

I saw this on the news, it’s absolutely amazing. To think he only wanted to raise £1000.

Almost at £12.5M now. I've done my bit and given £10
It's taking a while for donations to go through, the page is extremely popular!

EDIT: £12.8M! Getting closer to £13M.

It's absolutely fantastic he's raised this money.


It's just sad he even needs to.

I saw a meme before that made me laugh;

Speedo Mick must be annoyed. He walked all that way for a couple hundred-grand when Tom walks in his back garden for millions.

Made me giggle.
