Hopefully you've heard of this inspirational man by now - he's raised literally millions of pounds for the NHS through walking laps of his garden. He's also recorded a cover version of "You'll Never Walk Alone", which made it to the Number 1 spot in the charts.


See if you can fit in a tribute to Captain Tom at some point today to join the whole country (and The Queen!) in wishing him a Happy Birthday. Here are some ideas:


  • Bake a birthday cake
  • Make a birthday banner
  • Design and make a new medal for him
  • Upload a salute to Captain Tom (link below)
  • Find out more about his life from Newsround and BBC News websites (links below)
  • Sing your own Happy Birthday or You'll Never Walk Alone cover song
  • Make a Captain Tom Powerpoint presentation with information about his life
  • See if you can find our exactly how much money he has raised for the NHS - what would you buy with that amount of money?
  • Create some Captain Tom art - there are loads of examples online!


It looks like it's going to be a slightly warmer day today (fingers crossed) so we might have to grit our teeth and film the water challenge we've both been nominated for. That is unless it gets too cold/wet out there again! wink


Have a lovely day and Thank You, Captain Tom!

Love Mrs D and Mrs N
