Captain Moore a British Army veteran, had celebrated his 100th birthday on 20 April 2020 with a 'walk in his garden”, 100 laps of 25 meters around his house, hoping to raise £1,000 for the NHS.
In the end, he raised over £30 million in donations, was promoted to the rank of Colonel and awarded the title of Baronet by Queen Elizabeth.
“I want to update you on the fact that today, 31 January, my father has been admitted to hospital” stated Hannah Ingram-Moore, the Captain’s daughter. “For the past few weeks he had been treated at home for pneumonia, being positive tested for Covid-19. He stayed home with us until he needed help breathing. Now he’s been admitted to the hospital but he’s not in the ICU.”
"The medical care he has received at home so far has been remarkable and we know the wonderful staff at Bradford Hospital will do everything they can to allow him to come home as soon as possible” the daughter continues “We know everyone wishes him the best. Of course, we are focused on my dad. We will update you as soon as we are able to do so."
