This pencil drawing of Colonel Tom Moore is being raffled off for the NHS in Sheffield
A Sheffield tattoo artist has created a pencil drawing of a young Colonel Tom Moore, which he now hopes to raffle off in support of the NHS.
Rob Bates, who owns Ink Surgery in Aston, took about three hours to create the drawing of NHS hero Tom Moore, aged 100 - who recently raised over £30m for the health service.
“I do quite a lot of commissions, and people kept asking me about doing a drawing of Tom,” said ther 36-year-old artist, who lives in Worskop.
“I’ve seen quite a lot of pictures at the moment that people have made, showing him as he is now, but I thought it would be cool to show him as he was when he was younger.
“I always had a raffle in mind for the end drawing, as I hope to raise £500 to donate to his appeal.”
Raffle tickets are available from Rob’s Facebook page: www.facebook.com/inksurgerytattoostudio at £5 each.
