The daughter of Captain Sir Tom Moore received substantial payments through her family-owned company for her participation in events related to her father’s charitable endeavours, reports reveal.
During the years 2021 and 2022, Hannah Ingram-Moore took part in the judging of awards ceremonies closely associated with the Captain Tom Foundation charity. Promotional videos indicated her presence as a representative of the charity.
Nonetheless, the remuneration she received was directed not to the Foundation itself, but rather to her family’s corporate entity. As of now, she has not yet issued a response to these allegations. The occasion in question was the Virgin Media O2 Captain Tom Foundation Connector Awards, prominently featuring the charity’s name and logo on the awards plaques.
During this period, Ms Ingram-Moore held the interim role of chief executive at the charity, drawing a yearly salary of £85,000. Despite her involvement, her compensation for these appearances was funnelled not to the Captain Tom Foundation, but rather to Maytrix Group, a company owned by Ms Ingram-Moore and her spouse, Colin.
For over a year, the charity commission has been looking into potential conflicts of interest between Ingram-Moores’ business and the charity after concerns built up about potential mismanagement and misconduct, reports the BBC.

Replying to a BBC email about this matter, Hannah Ingram-Moore said via email: “You are awful. It’s a total lie.”
Six minutes later she said: “Apologies. That reply was for a scammer who has been creating havoc”.
Ms Ingram-Moore has not responded to a series of questions from BBC Newsnight about the thousand of pounds that her company received.
It is understood by BBC Newsnight that Ms Ingram-Morre did not try to gain approval from the charities board before getting a commercial arrangement with Virgin Media O2. So in November an investigation commenced.

A spokesperson for the charity trustees said: “The Captain Tom Foundation is aware of the commercial arrangements made by Hannah Ingram-Moore with Virgin Media O2 in respect of the ‘Virgin Media Captain Tom Foundation Connector Awards’.
“This matter is subject of an ongoing internal investigation. The Charity Commission has been notified of the Foundation’s review of this matter and the Foundation will share its findings once the investigation has concluded.”
Ms Ingram-Moore’s husband remains a truste and they both remain directors of companies Maytrix and Club Nook.
A Charity Commission spokesperson said: “Our inquiry into the Captain Tom Foundation remains ongoing. Its scope includes examining whether the trustees have adequately managed conflicts of interest, including with private companies connected to the Ingram-Moore family.”
A Virgin Media spokesperson said: “When payment was made, we were not aware of any concerns about Maytrix or the Captain Tom Foundation that have since come to light after our campaign and relationship with Captain Tom finished.”
