Captain Tom, RIP
Captain Tom died of Covid-19 and pneumonia. He was 100 years old.
Captain Tom brightened all our lives when he decided to walk round his garden to raise £1000 for the NHS. When you're 100 and walk with a support frame, that's not an easy task. In the end, he raised £33 million. But more than that, he raised our spirits at a very low time.
Farewell, Captain Sir Thomas Moore, and thanks for your service.
