Happy 100th Birthday Captain Tom Moore
Happy 100th Birthday Captain Tom Moore from Maltby Rother Valley Lions Club. He is an inspiration! What an achievement, the money he has raised will go a long way to help our wonderful NHS fight this dreadful virus.

Our club are helping with donations to various groups, helping the elderly and vulnerable in our community by shopping etc. and also we have a member making scrubs for hospitals. He is an example and inspiration to us all. A birthday card has been sent to him from our club to show our thanks and respect to this wonderful man.

If you would like to make a donation to Captain Tom, please visit his: Just Giving Donations page >
