He was always grateful for the care he received whilst in hospital and decided to raise £1000 (pounds) for the N.H.S by walking around his garden a hundred times and using his walking frame and he proudly wore his war medals too.
The story went viral and now people all over the world have heard of captain Tom, the response to his charity was phenomenal and went through the roof in donations, at the last count it had gone to over 20 million pounds and still rising.
He has become a celebrity over night with Royalty, Ministers and celebrities giving Tom well deserved praise.
He has with the NHS choir and singer Michael Ball made a record of the classic song' you'll never walk alone'.
He is a beacon of hope in these dark times and a great inspiration to us all. we salute him.
