QEH Macmillan centre team sing happy 100th birthday to NHS fund-raiser Captain Tom Moore

Staff at the Macmillan Care and Treatment Centre at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital King’s Lynn are sending NHS fund-raising sensation Caption Tom Moore a special birthday thank-you

So far, the 99-year-old has raised more than £28m for the NHS after he pledged – and completed – 100 lengths of his garden ahead of his 100th birthday, which is on April 30.

Now the Macmillan team at QEH are showing their gratitude and singing happy birthday in a video message.

Victoria Coe, receptionist, who scripted and planned the video, said: “We loved what he has done to raise so much for the NHS during these challenging times. Captain Moore – and the whole country is showing its appreciation for the NHS and other key workers – so we wanted to do something different, send him a personal thank you and something special to mark his 100th birthday. He is an incredible role model for everyone.”
