Capt Tom Moore raises £15m for NHS as he completes garden walk

A 99-year-old war veteran has raised a staggering £15m for NHS staff after reaching his goal of walking 100 laps of his garden.

Capt Tom Moore had hoped to achieve the target in time for his 100th birthday on 30 April, and walked the last 25 lengths on live TV on Thursday morning, with a guard of honour from the 1st Battalion of the Yorkshire Regiment by his side.

“I’m surrounded by the right sort of people so I’m feeling fine,” Moore said as he completed his laps to a round of applause.

“It was just so emotional,” said his daughter, Hannah Ingram-Moore. “I mean, how special for his own regiment to be there as a guard of honour. We were just thrilled and incredibly proud.”

She said her father was now “absolutely galvanised” and had vowed to keep on walking for as long as the donations keep flowing in.

When Moore started his fundraising on 8 April, he hoped to raise £1,000 for NHS Charities Together, but after raising £70,000 in 24 hours he extended his target to £1m.
