WORCESTER Cathedral bell-ringers will toll the bourdon bell 100 times this Saturday (February 27) in memory of Captain Sir Tom Moore on the day of his funeral.

The tolling of the bell will start at 12.05pm

The Dean of Worcester, the Very Rev Peter Atkinson said: “Captain Sir Tom Moore exemplified the very best of human courage, compassion, resilience, hope and generosity under extraordinary and challenging circumstances.

“We are proud to honour him by tolling the bourdon bell in his memory. Our thoughts remain with his family and loved-ones.”

The bourdon bell of Worcester Cathedral is normally used by the clock to strike the hours, and is tolled on significant occasions.
