Captain Tom's daughter Hannah Ingram-Moore accused of taking £47,000 in loans designed to help struggling companies

Captain Tom's daughter Hannah Ingram-Moore accused of taking £47,000 in loans designed to help struggling companies

After the late Captain Tom inspired millions, his foundation has been caught in a scandal over the use of funds by Hannah Ingram-Moore.

Captain Tom was an inspiration to millions over the pandemic, but now his foundation is at the centre of a financial scandal.

His daughter, Hannah Ingram-Moore, has been accused of using charity funds to build a lavish pool and spa block at her family home.

Now, financial reports suggest that the charity boss also took out £47,000 worth of COVID loans - despite her consultancy firm doubling its profits over the pandemic.

In statements uploaded to Companies House, the Maytrix Group LTD owned a £10,000 and an additional £37,000 loan – taken out during the pandemic.

The financial documents even state that the loans are ‘guaranteed by the government’, further suggesting that these were Bounce Back Loans – an incentive run by the UK government to help struggling firms over the successive lockdown.

Aimed to support businesses ‘adversely affected by coronavirus’, Ingram-Moore’s company took out the loans despite profits doubling from £104,381 to £227,532 in 2020.

The Captain Tom Foundation also paid nearly £38,000 to Maytrix – shown in financial statements on Companies House.

Previously, the 52-year-old was criticised after building a spa and pool block at her Bedfordshire home – despite initially seeking planning permission for a Captain Tom Foundation building.

The original plans, dated 2021, suggest that the site would be an office space for the charity, but this was changed later.

Despite being refused, the construction of the pool and spa went ahead, with Ingram-Moore having been ordered to tear down the site by authorities.

Meanwhile, the Charity Commission is investigating the foundation following the recent scandal with the charity no long accepting donations.

In a statement, the foundation said: "At this moment in time, the sole focus of The Captain Tom Foundation is to ensure that it cooperates fully with the ongoing Statutory Inquiry by the Charity Commission."

"As a result, The Captain Tom Foundation is not presently actively seeking any funding from donors.”

It continued: "Accordingly, we have also taken the decision to close all payment channels whilst the Statutory Inquiry remains open.

"Once the findings of the Statutory Inquiry have been communicated, The Captain Tom Foundation will be in a better position to make a decision in relation to its future, but for now, our main priority is to assist the Charity Commission with its enquiry.”

LADbible has contacted the Captain Tom Foundation for comment.
