War veteran, incredible fund-raiser and all-round hero passes away at the age of 100

It is with heavy hearts that we at Key.Aero have learned of the sad passing of Captain Sir Tom Moore.

The 100-year-old war veteran gained his well-deserved fame last year, when he won the nation's hearts through raising just under £33 million by walking laps of his garden. Initially his target had been £1,000. The astonishing sum he raised went to the NHS as part of their ongoing work in battling the Coronavirus pandemic.

Sadly, Captain Sir Tom was taken ill with the virus on Sunday and today, he lost his battle.

We are devastated to hear of the passing of such an inspirational man, and our thoughts are with Captain Sir Tom's family at this extremely sad time. A true hero.
