Kind readers send Captain Tom ‘get well soon’ messages as he battles covid in hospital


HUNDREDS of kind-hearted messages continue to pour in from Sun readers to wish Captain Tom Moore a speedy recovery.

The 100-year-old war veteran, who was awarded a knighthood by the Queen for raising millions for the NHS, was admitted to hospital in Bedford at the weekend after struggling with his breathing.

Follow our Captain Tom Moore live blog for all the latest updates on the national hero.

James Fairley, six, from Northamptonshire would like to send his best wishes his picture of Captain Tom on his motorbike

Since then, the fundraising hero has been inundated with cards, pictures and video messages.

One reader performed an incredible piano rendition of ‘Somewhere Over The Rainbow’ for Captain Tom.

Steve Mansfield wrote alongside his performance: “Captain Sir Tom Moore we’re all behind you”.

If you’d like to send a message, email [email protected] with your full name and town and we will pass them to Tom as he recovers in hospital.

Here are some of the lovely messages readers have sent him so far:

Dear Captain Sir Tom,

It’s come as a shock to us all that you are now in hospital with your breathing problems and pneumonia, as well as that dreadful virus. Many of us see you as invincible, which is an unfair challenge to leave at your door!  

 I wish you a speedy recovery, however, so you can continue to put smiles on our faces as the nation’s favourite grandad and spent more time with your own loving family.  

 May God grant you a good few years ahead and keep you safe as a role model for the rest of us!

 Tricia Stewart, Bethnal Green, London.

Get well soon Captain Tom. Stay strong

Love from the Duggies, Frodsham, Cheshire

Dear Sir Tom, 

I would like to send you my best wishes on a full recovery from this awful Covid 19. You are such a lovely person, who has helped so many, courageous and strong willed. 

Love to you xxx 
Iris Rogers, Tamworth, Staffs 

We as a family would like to wish Captain Tom all our love and best wishes for a full recovery. Your family Tom, like yourself, are in our prayers and thoughts.

Best wishes, Karen Dymek.

God bless you, Tom. Loads of love, Pat and the Gapper family, from Caerphilly, South Wales
