Stunning artwork honouring Captain Tom Moore

  • 50,000 nails have been used in an artwork honouring Captain Tom Moore.
  • A Keighley based sculptor created the piece to mark the war veteran's fundraising efforts.
  • Marcus Levine is now auctioning the artwork for charity.

A Keighley based sculptor has used 50,000 nails to create a piece of artwork to honour NHS fundraiser Captain Tom Moore.

It took Marcus Levine two weeks to craft the piece, which is being auctioned for charity.

The artist wanted to recognised the fundraising efforts of the war veteran, who raised more than £32m for NHS charities by completing 100 laps of his garden before his 100th birthday in April.

Watch here how the artwork was created:

A limited run of 15 prints of the sculpture have also been made available for £275 each.

All funds raised from the sale of the prints will be donated to the Care Workers Charity.

The auction for the limited artwork is taking place online with Tennant's auctioneers.

Stray FM's been told it's receiving quite a bit of interest already - with an anonymous bid for £10,000 already pledged so far.
