Congratulations Colonel Tom Moore

Congratulations Colonel Tom on your well deserved knighthood. 

Capturing the hearts of the nation at such a difficult time, raising a staggering amount (over £32 million) for charity, you are an inspiration to us all. 

Thank you. 

Captain Tom Moore is to be knighted for his fundraising efforts after a special nomination from the prime minister.

The war veteran raised more than £32m for NHS charities by completing 100 laps of his garden before his 100th birthday in April.
