How Captain Tom Moore's fundraising has gone from zero to over £17million in a week.
Captain Moore has raised more than £17million so far on his JustGiving page, despite having an initial target of £1,000 when he began fundraising just over a week ago. The fundraising campaign was launched last Thursday, and soon hit its initial target within the first 24 hours. By Saturday, he reached a second target of £100,000. It has been a rare piece of good news in a world full of fear at the coronavirus pandemic which has claimed more than 130,000 lives globally. People from 53 different countries have now donated over £17million to Captain Tom Moore's fundraiser for the NHS as he achieved his goal of 100 laps of his garden.
