The Falkland Islands has joined in paying tribute to the remarkable Captain Tom Moore, on the occasion of his 100th birthday. Captain Tom, now made an honorary colonel, has raised more than 30 million pounds for the NHS by walking laps of his back garden.
Falklands lawmaker MLA Stacy Bragger on behalf of the Legislative Assembly has sent the following message to Captain Moore:
Dear Captain Moore,
On behalf of the people of the Falkland Islands I write to wish you a very happy 100th birthday.
We may be 8,000 miles away from you in the South Atlantic but we too have been amazed by your incredible fundraising efforts for NHS Charities Together. To raise over £30m for those fighting to save lives from COVID-19 is a monumental achievement.
The Falkland Islands are a proud part of the UK family and as a community we are so thankful to all those in the UK Armed Forces past and present, such as yourself, who have enabled us to live in freedom.
During these difficult times for so many, we thank you for inspiring us and for demonstrating the highest levels of determination and selflessness that we must all aspire to.
We wish you a very happy birthday and hope that you enjoy your extremely special day.
You’ll never walk alone!
