Captain Tom Moore honored with Royal Mail postmark on 100th birthday

The 99-year-old British war veteran who has raised £29m for NHS by walking laps of his garden has been honored with a special postmark, the BBC reports.

Royal Mail will stamp all letters with the message to celebrate Captain Tom Moore’s 100th birthday on Thursday.

All stamped post up until Friday will be marked with: “Happy 100th Birthday Captain Thomas Moore NHS fundraising hero 30th April 2020.”

Royal Mail said it was “honored” to issue the postmark.

World War Two veteran Capt Tom, from Marston Moretaine in Bedfordshire, has extended his challenge to 200 laps after he completed the first 100 laps 14 days ahead of schedule.

His initial £1,000 fundraising target was broken in about 24 hours and he has now raised more than £29m for the NHS.
