Captain Tom Moore has raised more than £30m in donations for NHS Charities Together by taking part in a “100th birthday walk”.
Earlier this month, Captain Moore launched a fundraiser for the NHS that involved walking 100 laps of his garden to mark his milestone birthday.
The veteran, who served in India and Burma during the Second World War, initially set a target of raising £1,000 on his JustGiving page, which would be donated to help support NHS workers during the coronavirus outbreak.
Just a few weeks on, the centenarian has garnered donations from more than one million people, received messages of support from well-known figures including members of the royal family and raised more than £30m in total, a target that he hit on his 100th birthday on Thursday 30 April.
