Coronavirus: Capt Tom Moore finishes NHS fundraiser as it tops £12m

A 99-year-old war veteran has walked 100 laps of his garden to raise more than £12m for the NHS.

Captain Tom Moore originally wanted to raise £1,000 for NHS Charities Together by completing laps of his garden before his 100th birthday.

But he smashed his target after more than 640,000 people made donations to his fundraising page.

As he finished the challenge, he said: “I feel fine, I hope you’re all feeling fine too.”

Capt Tom told the BBC earlier that the total amount raised so far was “an absolutely fantastic sum of money”.

“I never dreamt I would be involved in such an occasion as this,” he said at the end of his final lap.
