Today, we are going to think about an amazing man called Captain Tom Moore. He turned 100 on 30 April. When he heard about the coronavirus and the magnificent work that doctors and nurses were doing, he wanted to do something to help. Although he uses a walking frame to help him walk, Captain Tom decided to raise some money for the NHS by doing a sponsored walk.
At the time of writing, Captain Tom Moore had raised over £28 million pounds for the NHS - and counting!
Each of us can do our bit to help each other right now. It might be something as simple as smiling at people, waving at them through a window or joining the Clap for Carers on our doorstep every Thursday night. We could place a rainbow or a teddy in the window to cheer people up, or even just be as helpful as possible around the house!
Let’s pause to think about what we could do to help each other right now.
Let’s pause to say, ‘Thank you’ to the NHS staff who are working so hard at the moment.
Watch the clips below to see how the story unfolded.
