R.I.P Sir Tom Moore
« on: February 02, 2021, 06:25:31 pm »
Captain Sir Tom Moore has died at the age of 100 after testing positive for Covid-19.

The charity fundraiser was taken to Bedford Hospital on Sunday after being treated for pneumonia for some time and testing positive for coronavirus last week.

Sir Tom’s fundraising efforts raised more than £32 million for the NHS, walking 100 laps of his garden before his 100th birthday during the first national lockdown in April.

Sad news. I thought he was a true inspiration.
I'm not a complete idiot: some parts are missing!

Hugely inspiring. He did more than most to prove that one can still be a very positive force at a very advanced age. Hope for the few of us who'll ever get that far....
