Nursery superheroes pay touching tribute to Captain Tom

A TOUCHING tribute to Captain Sir Tom Moore has been made by other superheroes at Nature Trails Day Nursery in Cawston.

Children and staff celebrated Captain Tom’s life and legacy with a Superhero Day.

The achievements of the beloved fund-raiser – who died aged 100 last week after raising more than £32m for the NHS by walking laps of his garden during the pandemic – were honoured through a series of special activities, which included creating a rainbow memorial display and union jack artwork, taking a 100 step walk in the garden, and having a group clap by way of tribute.

Dressed as other superheroes, children discussed the people that inspire them, while kind-hearted parents made donations to the nursery’s charity partner, Cancer Research UK.

Nature Trails Day Nursery charity representative Louise Gulliver said: “We have closely followed the story of Captain Tom at Nature Trails and wanted to pay our respects with the children to his extraordinary life.

“We had a lovely day remembering the amazing gesture he made to help better the lives of others, while dressing up as other superheroes including doctors and nurses and raising money for our own charity partner, Cancer Research UK.”
