Happy Birthday Captain Tom!!! Captain Tom has been part of the most inspirational story during this Coronavirus pandemic and everyone has followed his fundraising and sponsored walk with interest and admiration. His total stands at over £29.5 million and is still rising. The sponsored walk was initially due to be completed by his 100th birthday, which is today and after following his inspirational journey we couldn’t let today go without wishing him a happy birthday. His rendition of You’ll Never Walk Alone duetting with Michael Ball reached number one in the charts raising yet more funds.
The Royal Mail says that all stamped post up until Friday will be marked with: “Happy 100th Birthday Captain Thomas Moore NHS fundraising hero 30th April 2020”.
Royal Mail has also said it has been inundated with birthday cards for Captain Tom and that they have had to open a dedicated collection box. There have been so many cards that they have all been sent to Bedford School. This is the school that one of his grandsons attend. All the cards have been stood up and displayed. Over 125,000 birthday cards have already been received at the school. I bet there will be plenty more or should I say Moore!! Certainly a good show for the hero of Coronavirus. Happy birthday from us here at Banana Crumble.
