A 99-YEAR-OLD war veteran has raised more than £14 million for the NHS after achieving his goal of walking 100 laps of his garden.
Captain Tom Moore completed the final four of the 25-metre laps at his Bedfordshire home today, with a special guard of honour by the 1st battalion of the Yorkshire Regiment.
Of the coronavirus pandemic, he said: "We will get through it in the end but it might take time, but at the end of the day we shall all be okay again ... the sun will shine on you again and the clouds will go away."
Mr Moore said plans for his 100th birthday party on April 30 had been affected by the virus, and he joked everyone would have to keep six metres away from him "because I must be something horrid."
He added that the national outpouring of love and support for him was "a party enough for me."
