London, April 16

A war veteran becomes a hero of the country by donating over 6.4 million pounds, equivalent to $8 million for the health service of Britain as he walks around his garden amid the crisis. The retired army captain named Tom Moore decided to repay the service he received from the state-run National Health Service when he broke his hip earlier two years.

After he broke his hip, he used a walking frame to move around. However, his disability could not stop him to do anything rather he challenged himself of walking 25 meters in his garden 100 hundred times, that too, before his 100th birthday which takes place later this month.

Tom Moore’s son-in-law, Colin Ingram shared the story about how it all began, he quoted that they took this step so that he keeps walking around as it can trigger the rate of recovery from his hip operation.

Ingram and his family told him that they will give him a pound after he completes each lap around the garden.

However, soon after it started, Moore’s family starting fielding people from not only the UK’s London but US, France, and Australia as well. Ingram also said that if it was only his family, they could never think of raising the amount of money Moore raised lately.   

Tom Moore’s step in raising money for the NHS has given them a new ray of hope that he will recover from his hip injury soon. Meanwhile, Moore does not have any plan to stop even after he is about to complete his 100-lap target.

Colin Ingram also quoted that Moore walks around the garden each day with whole excitement and willfulness and if the public approaches him to donate money for the cause; he will keep walking in the future as well.
