Happy Birthday to Captain Tom Moore!

I am sure you have all seen the news of war veteran, Captain Tom Moore,  completing 100 laps of his garden before his 100th birthday in order to raise money for the NHS! It is amazing to hear today that he has raised more than 12 million pounds for NHS Charities Together. 


I have noticed that some children have written birthday cards to Captain Tom Moore  as a way of saying thank you!

If you wish to do this, please use the following address in order to ensure they are received:

Captain Tom Moore

C/O Post Office Ltd

67 Bedford Road

Marston Moretaine

MK45 0LA




A challenge for you... I wonder if you could complete some laps of your back garden/yard! How long does it take you to complete 100 of them I wonder?
