Coronavirus: 99-yr-old war veteran raises $2.5m for health workers



A 99-year-old war veteran has raised nearly more than 2 million pounds ($2.5m) for British health workers by attempting to walk the length of his garden one hundred times before his 100th birthday later this month.

Captain Tom Moore, who has used a walking frame to move around since breaking his hip, said he was grateful to the National Health Service (NHS) for the treatment he received and wanted to do something in return.

Moore, who turns 100 on April 30, had hoped to raise 500,000 pounds, but his charity campaign has quadrupled that figure already.

The veteran, who served in Asia during World War Two, had a message of hope for his compatriots.

“That’s the way I think I’ve always looked at things: tomorrow will be a good day,” he said.
