Drax’s cooling tower tribute to national hero Captain Sir Tom Moore

The UK’s largest power station is paying its respects to Captain Sir Tom Moore, who sadly died this week, with a dedication on one of its 12 huge cooling towers.

Drax is projecting a message from employees ‘saluting’ the iconic NHS fundraiser on the 114m tall cooling tower at its power station in North Yorkshire, which will be seen from miles around.

The former Army Captain who was originally from Yorkshire, raised £32m for the NHS last year by completing 100 laps of his garden ahead of his 100th birthday.

Drax illuminated one of its cooling towers in blue lights last year in recognition of the work of the NHS during the first wave of the pandemic and also projected a poppy onto the cooling towers to raise money for the Royal British Legion on Armistice Day.

The message for Captain Sir Tom Moore at Drax is being projected from 6pm – 11pm on Friday, and will be visible from the west of the power station.
