Tribute for a fundraising hero

A PAINTING of Captain Tom Moore was delivered to Dumfries Infirmary to help mark the NHS fund-raiser's 100th birthday. Artist Mark Bellingham captured Tom in his famous thumbs-up pose. Staff Nurse Dale Stewart and ACA Garry Edgar of the Scottish Ambulance Service show off the work. Meanwhile in Stranraer, piper Harrison Gibb took to the streets to play Scotland the Brave to honour the fundraising heroics of Captain Moore. Captain Moore has raised almost £33m for the NHS with a sponsored walk.
