Captain Tom, who now lives in Bedfordshire, decided to set himself a challenge, to raise £1000, for the NHS charities by walking 100 laps of his 25m garden.
He was supposed to have a 100th birthday party with 100 people but it got cancelled because of Covid-19.
Captain Moore received honorary promotion, he was promoted to Colonel. The RAF flypast was organised as well as special greetings from the Queen and Prime Minister. He was informed of his promotion to honorary colonel in a letter, presented to him by Lt Col Thomas Miller, commanding officer of the Battalion The Yorkshire Regiment.
Also he featured in the cover version of the song “You’ll Never Walk Alone”. All money raised also went to the NHS.
A Total of £32.79 million was raised by the end of his challenge.
