An eight-year-old schoolgirl has rallied children across the UK to make 100th birthday cards for a World War Two veteran who has raised millions for the NHS.
Reegan Davies, from Port Talbot, says she wanted to give something back. "He's a war hero and now he's my hero, and the nation's hero", she said.
In an appeal on social media she asked people to make a 100th birthday card for Tom and to share their creation on social media, setting a target of 1,500 virtual submissions.
His fundraising efforts have since taken off and made him into a cult celebrity figure, and he has continued to walk laps of his garden and raise more money during the coronavirus pandemic.
A Battle of Britain Memorial Flight flypast of a Spitfire and a Hurricane has been organised by the RAF to mark Capt Moore’s birthday, and he has been appointed as an honorary colonel of the Army Foundation College.
After raising more than £3,000 for Captain Tom's fundraising efforts, Reegan says she just wanted to thank him for his amazing efforts.
"He's turning 100 and he's raising a lot of money for our NHS", Reegan told ITV Cymru Wales.
"We made #cardfortom and then it went viral all over social media. I wanted to raise money for Tom because he's got a fundraising page so we're raising money to give to Tom to help him raise more money."
"The world is more positive now because the world was down because of covid-19 and now everyone is brightened up because of Tom and its brought everyone together".
Reegan has organised the collection of more than 2,000 cards.
"All the nation really think he's a good man and he must be proud of himself because we're all very proud of him", Reegan added.
