A 99-year-old war veteran who has raised more than £12m for the NHS by walking around his garden says he will keep going while people continue to donate. Captain Tom Moore, who turns 100 at the end of April, has smashed his original target to raise £1,000 by walking 100 lengths of his Bedfordshire garden. Captain Moore said: “We set out originally to raise a little bit of money by me walking up and down 100 times in reference to my 100th birthday.” Donations continue to pour in from people wanting to support front line NHS workers fighting the coronavirus.
