Since the UK has been in lockdown, Colonel Tom Moore has become a household name. The war veteran who has been walking lengths of his garden to raise money for the NHS amid the coronavirus pandemic, has today turned 100 years old.
Colonel Tom Moore has raised an astonishing £30 million for the NHS after receiving donations from all over the world, his fundraising page closes midnight tonight (30th April).
In a message to supporters, Colonel Tom said: ‘Reaching 100 is quite something. Reaching 100 with such interest in me and huge generosity from the public is very overwhelming. ‘People keep saying what I have done is remarkable, however it’s actually what you have done for me which is remarkable.”
Nottingham residents John and Margaret Clark often create different topiary designs in their garden that mark events that occur at that time. Today they have created this incredible topiary honouring Colonel Tom on his landmark 100th birthday.
