Captain tom Moore was a British army officer. He was born in a town called Keighly and it was not that big of a town. Before his birthday he had set himself a challenge which I will mention later. He was born on April 30th 1920 and has a daughter.
The challenge that he set himself was to do 100 laps to raise maybe over £1,000 and successful it was! Before his birthday he made it over £23m which is very much a huge amount of money. He did all those 100 laps just in his garden.
When he was still young he had multiple jobs so he used his time wisely. The 1st job was being a managing director of a concrete company and then joining a motorcycle race. Who knows there could be more! To Bradford it was known as a civil parish.
