Var veteran raises over £6M for NHS

From The Guardian:

A 99-year-old war veteran has raised more than £6m for the NHS by aiming to walk 100 lengths of his back garden before his 100th birthday. Capt Tom Moore, originally from Keighley in West Yorkshire, initially planned to raise £1,000 through the challenge.

However, after launching his campaign on 8 April and raising £70,000 in 24 hours, he extended his fundraiser and hit £1m on Tuesday morning. By 3.30pm he reached £2m, and passed £3m early in the evening. On Wednesday morning his Twitter account said: “6 MILLION POUNDS!! Thank you everyone, this is all for our incredible NHS Charities.”
