Knowle Green Day Nursery children congratulate Captain Tom
Children from Knowle Green Day Nursery in Staines have showcased their creativity by making a one hundredth birthday card for heroic fundraiser, Captain Tom Moore.
The former Army Captain, who turns 100 on 30th April, captured the hearts of the nation after walking 100 laps of his Bedfordshire garden in order to raise vital funds for the NHS. Captain Tom has currently raised over £18 million for the cause online at JustGiving, and has inspired those all across the country, including pre-schoolers and practitioners from the day nursery in Knowle Green.
The children decorated the birthday card with handprints, as well as a medal, which they have collectively decided he deserves for his incredible efforts.
Knowle Green Day Nursery Deputy to Area Manager, Anita Bedford explained;
“We have all been so captivated by the story of Captain Tom and were delighted to hear that we could write and send our well wishes. The children watched the videos of his walk and were very excited to be able to wish him a happy birthday and thank him for all the good he is doing for our healthcare heroes.”
