I am deeply saddened by the news of Captain Sir Tom Moore, aged 100, passing away.
#CaptainTom was a beacon of hope during this extraordinary time. By his simple act of kindess, he touched the hearts of millions.
Raising almost £33m for the NHS charities and in the processes uniting the nation is truly extraordinary.
He showed that age is no barrier to making a difference to others’ lives. His compassion and resilience was remarkable. His memory and legacy will continue to inspire generations.
Our thoughts are with all his family
