“Captain Tom Moore has achieved that by uniting millions across the world in support of his truly outstanding fundraising endeavours.
“Captain Tom, I look forward to shaking your hand in person someday.”
Ahead of his 100th birthday the national treasure has received thousands of cards following his sporting exploits.
The Duchess of Cambridge, Dame Kelly Homes and England football captain Harry Kane are among those to send cards to Mr Moore ahead of his birthday.
Over 125,000 cards were sent to Bedford School which his grandson Benjie Ingram-Moore attends.
