At the moment it seems that the whole of the news is taken up with sad stories about Coronavirus and then suddenly a story that is such a positive and inspirational one jumps out and deserves special mention.
Captain Tom Moore is 99 and decided that after treatment for cancer and a broken hip that he would like to repay the NHS. Tom is almost 100 and had planned to do 100 circuits of his garden using his walker to try and raise some funds for the NHS. He started with a relatively small amount of money and then after being interviewed on the television his appeal caught the hearts of the nation. He had to revise his total again and again and the target is currently £500,000 which is so many times his original target. We have been inspired by the story and seeing what an inspiration Captain Tom has been when talking about his event. His catch phase “Tomorrow will be a good day” has been heard many times.
I wanted to find the link for the Just Giving page as part of my research into the story and when I logged in a few minutes ago the amount of money raised was over £1,100.000 and each time I looked the total was going up. We have been inspired not only to help raise funds for the NHS but by the story of positivity and inspiration from Captain Tom. He wanted to achieve his target by the time he reached 100 at the end of the month but he has absolutely done that and more. Congratulation to Captain Tom with helping to inspire the nation. To see Captain Tom’s Just Giving Page click here to see his current total. We have been inspired to sponsor him and certainly think this story fits in with our good news and positive, inspirational ethos that we use.
By the time I have finished the amount raised is over £1.3 million !!! So many people have been inspired.
