WWII veteran Captain Tom Moore has thanked people for helping him raise more than £1million for the NHS.

The war hero was hoping to raise £500k for the NHS by marching up and down his garden. Today, he appeared on Good Morning Britain to reveal that it has surpassed more than £1million.

Captain Moore thanked Piers for a contribution he made yesterday, and said in the last war it was soldiers in uniforms doing the fighting, now it is medical personnel on the frontline “doing a marvellous job”.


The veteran challenged himself to complete 100 lengths of his garden – which is 25 metres long – before he turns 100 at the end of the month.
