Now you're blaming others lol. It will "happily" take donations all day long because Johnson and Cummings lap it up and positively encourage it. More money for the elite few

£20 million won't even pay for the upgrade of the CEO's office at 4 hospitals, which is probably where it will end up.  Of course the suckers that paid out will never know what happened to it.

Don't make them like this chap anymore .. Salt of the Earth he is ..  A recognition of this achievement will come in the next honours list for sure ..  Captain Moore we salute you .. 

This is not going be to be a popular view point.  Good on the Captain, well played and he deseves the praise, maybe even a medal, but £20 million, really??  People get caught up in the moment and swep

This chap is a near a 100 yrs old and set out to originally raise a £1000 for his local health care trust to say thank you for recent treatment he'd had .. No one least of all him or his family realis

Amazing how some posters can take a thread on someone doing a bit of good to thank those who helped him, and start slanging matches that degenerate into sniping, snide comments and bitterness towards each other. 

Indeed.

 

Has anyone seen the movie/documentary 'First Light'?

The subject is Geoffrey Wellum the youngest British pilot during the BOB.

He is now deceased but those two honourable gentlemen are like peas from the same pod..

As pointed out on many occasion TV, frequented by the good the bad and the ugly.

Piers Morgan's virtue signalling has been quite nauseating throughout this virus saga but to be fair it was him who highlighted Capt Tom's efforts and it snowballed from there.

 

When the National lottery started in 1994 one of it's selling points was a claim that a new hospital will be built in every UK county from the proceeds. I have no idea whether any were ever actually built. Info was less than forthcoming last time I attempted to find out.

it doesn't rely on such donations at all. It actually sucks up billions of Pounds into a pitifully inefficient organisation that just treats to the lowest common denominator due to lack of resorces, while its many useless managers are paid 6 figure salaries for overseeing that inefficiency.  let's not get too teary eyed about the organisation, albiet they are doing their best right now. 

And dont forget it treats the Self inflicted Injury's . smoking ,obesity ,Alcoholism, Sunday sports injury's Car accidents, Health tourists, and the rests.
