About Captain Sir Tom Moore

Captain Sir Tom Moore

Born: 30th April 1920, Keighley, Yorkshire, England

Died: 2nd February 2021, Bedford Hospital South Wing, Bedford

 

Captain Sir Tom Moore was a British Army officer and fundraiser who raised money for charity in the run-up to his 100th birthday during the COVID-19 pandemic. He served in India and the Burma campaign during the Second World War, and later became an instructor in armoured warfare

 

On 6th April 2020, Captain Tom Moore set out to walk 100 laps of his garden, before his hundredth birthday.  By doing this, he hoped to raise £1,000 for NHS charities.  Instead, Captain Tom inspired a whole nation, and raised £38.9 million.  His efforts were followed closely on tv and on his 99th birthday, a local school hall had to be used to sort all of his birthday cards!  

 

Thanks poured in from NHS workers all over the country and in July 2020 Captain Tom Moore was knighted by the Queen in a unique outdoor ceremony.  He vowed to keep on walking until his100th birthday and then move onto his next challenge.  Sadly, Captain Sir Tom Moore succumbed to COVID just short of his 100th birthday, but his legacy lives on.
