Inspired by the efforts of Captain Tom Moore, 100-year-old Dabirul Islam Choudhury took up the challenge of walking 100 laps of his garden while fasting during the Islamic holy month of Ramadan.

Mr Choudhury who lives in St Albans, England, has been raising funds for coronavirus relief in the UK and Bangladesh. His initial aim was to raise £1,000, which he reached in just a few hours.

Since then, he’s raised over £180,000 for the Ramadan Family Commitment Covid-19 crisis initiative on his JustGiving page.

“Thank you for your generous donations,” Mr Choudhury said. “We have proved that we can stand hand to hand and shoulder to shoulder during the most unprecedented time of our lives.

“I would like to congratulate Captain Sir Thomas Moore for being knighted for his exemplary efforts to raise funds for our NHS.”

Mr Choudhury has been fundraising for all of this year’s Ramadan, which runs from 23 April to 23 May. During the Islamic holy month, he has continued to observe religious fasting.

Mr Choudhury is an accomplished poet and a local community leader in St Albans. He has been involved in many community projects, raising money for the independence struggle of Bangladesh.
