Sir Tom Moore will be remembered by a national clap around 6pm. He died due to coronavirus and pneumonia.
Prime Minister Boris Johnson has encouraged the general public to hitch the round of applause tonight to ‘show our appreciation for him and every one that he stood for and believed in’. He told the Commons today: ‘I encourage everyone to hitch during a national clap for Captain Tom and every one those doctors for whom he raised money at 6pm this evening.’
It comes after MPs observed a minute’s silence in memory of the military veteran and therefore the tens of thousands of people who have lost their lives to the pandemic. Speaker Sir Lindsay Hoyle said of Sir Tom: ‘His dignity and determination in raising money to support the NHS charities caught the nation’s mood at the foremost difficult time.
He exemplified the simplest of our values.’ The granddad, who served in WWII, initially began to boost £1,000 for the NHS by walking 100 laps around his garden. He ended up raising £32.7 million after ‘capturing the hearts of the nation’ together with his mission.
Tom’s daughters Hannah Ingram – Moore and Lucy Teixeria spoke about their dad saying that they are here to announce the death of their dad. They continued to say that they were so grateful that they got to spend some time with him before he passed away. The daughter and grandchildren face timed in his last hours. They said “They had spent many hours chatting with him, remembering their childhood and their mother. There were lots of laughter and tears involved.
The last year of our father’s life was nothing in need of remarkable. The last year of our father’s life was nothing in need of remarkable. He was a man that could dreams things out of the ordinary. The family continued to mention “even though impacts many lives during a short time, he was an excellent father and grandfather and can survive in their hearts.
