In honour of Captain Tom’s 100th birthday, David hosted a staff BBQ at Grunwerg, complete with birthday cakes with everyone happily joining in to sing “Happy Birthday”!
All staff wore face masks bearing a photo of Captain Tom in celebration of his awe-inspiring fund raising efforts to support the NHS.
Of course, social distancing was observed by the members of staff at all times!
As reported by BBC News today, ‘Captain Tom Moore has been awarded a prestigious gold Blue Peter badge for raising almost £33m for the NHS after the war veteran completed 100 laps of his Bedfordshire garden, receiving donations from more than 1.5m supporters.
The badge is the show’s highest accolade and famous recipients include the Queen, Sir David Attenborough and Mary Berry. Capt Tom’s birthday on Thursday was marked with an RAF flypast and a message from the Queen.’
