KEIGHLEY-born Captain Sir Tom Moore has received his latest accolade.

He was made an honorary member of the Guild of Freemen of the City of London in an online ceremony.

A congratulatory message from the Princess Royal, centenary master of the guild, was read out.

She said Captain Moore, who raised over £32 million for NHS charities by walking laps of his garden, had proved “an inspiration and a symbol of hope for the future”.

His “extraordinary” fundraising achievements embodied the guild’s aims of fellowship and benevolence, she added.

The ceremony, which was streamed live online, was conducted by master Ann-Marie Jefferys.

She was accompanied by Alderman Sir David Wootton – past master and former Lord Mayor of the City of London – and Christine Cook, the guild’s clerk.

Captain Moore, who was awarded the freedom of the City last month, said he was “extremely honoured” to receive the latest accolade.

He added: “I remain humbled by the love and gratitude that I have received from the British public and am delighted to accept this award from the Guild of Freemen.”

The guild has nearly 2,000 members worldwide.
