A Facebook group calling for Captain Thomas Moore to be immediately knighted has now reached more than 116,000 members as donations to the just giving page reach a staggering 27 million pounds.
The Facebook group "Give Captain Tom A KnightHood & Fan Club" is calling for the Captain to be immediately knighted by the queen after his charitable efforts have raised more than 27 million pounds for charity. Sir Tom, as he is now known by his fans, raised the money by walking lengths of his garden only aided by a walking aid. The 99-year-old only set out to raise £1000 but has since gone on to raise a lot more. The Captain has also managed to lift the spirits of an entire nation at a time when things seem so bleak. An online petition calling for the Captain to be knighted has also reached 800,000 signatures. Fans of the group are also calling for a "National Tom Moore Day" once a year to carry on his charitable efforts.
