Have you seen the amazing news? Captain Tom Moore now holds TWO world records.
The 99 year old war veteran has become the oldest person to reach number one in the UK charts – with his charity single in collaboration with Michael Ball and The NHS Voices choir – You’ll Never Walk alone.
He has also broken the Guinness World Record for raising the most money from a charity walk as an individual.
Captain Tom Moore turns 100 at the end of this month and has currently raised just under £30 million for NHS Charities Together! What an amazing achievement.
You can see his Just Giving page HERE.
Hundreds of thousands of birthday cards have now been sent to Captain Tom for his 100th birthday.
We were all blown away when we saw the Bedford school hall near to where Tom lives.
It’s currently being used to house the hundreds of thousands of the birthday cards that have been sent to Captain Moore for his 100th birthday. So far he’s received more than 135,000 birthday cards! WOW! How brilliant is that?
