Captain Tom Moore's NHS fundraiser hits £20 million

Captain Tom Moore’s bid to raise money for the NHS by walking laps of his garden has hit £20 million – less than two weeks after he started the challenge.

On April 6 the 99-year-old Second World War veteran set out to walk 100 laps of his garden in Bedfordshire before his 100th birthday on April 30.

His initial target was to raise £1,000 for NHS Charities Together – a target that he has smashed by 4,008%.
