PM to ‘recognise’ hero war veteran after he raises £18m for NHS


Captain Tom Moore, the Second World War veteran who has raised more than £18m for the NHS, will receive recognition for his “heroic efforts” from the prime minister, Downing Street has said.

The 99-year-old originally aimed to raise £1,000 through his JustGiving page to help the fight against the coronavirus pandemic – but his actions have now led to a petition for him to be knighted after donations rocketed.

Responding online to the Change.org petition, Number 10 said Boris Johnson “will certainly be looking at ways to recognise Tom for his heroic efforts” after the online campaign received more than 500,000 signatures.
