  • Watch Rebecca Haworth's report as friends and family remember Captain Sir Tom Moore

Captain Sir Tom Moore would have been 101 years old on 30th April. To celebrate his remarkable achievements friends and family have been remembering his life.

He lived in the Bedfordshire village of Marston Moretaine for more than a decade before he became world famous when he decided to raise money for the NHS by walking around his garden.

His determination and optimism won the hearts of the nation and when his fundraising campaign finally finished when he turned 100 he had raised more than £32 million pounds.

Captain Sir Tom served in the British army in India and Burma with the Royal Armoured Corps and was made an honourary colonel by the Army Foundation College.
