I am sure that you will have already heard of Captain Tom Moore, now Colonel Tom Moore and his amazing fundraising feat.
In celebration of his upcoming 100th Birthday – he set out to raise £1000 for NHS Charities Together by walking 100 laps of his garden.
To date, he has raised just short of £29 million with that figure still rising. What a fantastic achievement by a truly magnificent and inspirational gentleman.
I recently saw a posting on Facebook where Roll and Scroll, a Grantham based steel fabricator, had presented him a bench in celebration of his upcoming birthday – 30th April 2020.
As soon as I saw their bench I could immediately see my Red Poppy double sided cushions adorning it. I instantly contacted them, asking if I could send them two cushions to be passed onto Captain Tom for his birthday. They happily agreed and explained that they were able to send them direct rather than to his POBox address, which the Post Office had set up to deal with all the congratulatory mail he is receiving.
I wasted no time in sending these on – I don’t think I have sent cushions to a more deserving person especially for all the support he has provided our NHS with his selfless task.
HUGE congratulations and a very very HAPPY BIRTHDAY Captain Tom.
