Captain Tom’s daughter breaks down in tears after confessing to keeping £800,000 meant for charity

Captain Tom’s daughter breaks down in tears after confessing to keeping £800,000 meant for charity

Hannah Ingram-Moore was interviewed on Talk TV by Piers Morgan about issues relating the the Captain Tom Moore Foundation

Hannah Ingram-Moore, the daughter of Captain Sir Tom Moore, fought back the tears as she admitted to keeping £800,000 from the sales of books written by her father, despite suggestions that the money was going to go to charity.

Ingram-Moore was interviewed on Talk TV by Piers Morgan and broke down when questioned about the money from sales of three books, including her late father’s autobiography ‘Tomorrow Will Be A Good Day’.

Captain Tom came to the public’s attention during the Covid-19 lockdowns when he walked 100 laps of his garden, raising £38.9 million for charity in the process, before his 100th birthday.

He died in 2021, but not before penning his autobiography.

At the beginning of that book, it reads: "Astonishingly at my age, with the offer to write this memoir I have also been given the chance to raise even more money for the charitable foundation now established in my name."

However, Ingram-Moore, who was interviewed alongside her husband Colin and children Benji and Georgia, said that it was her father’s wish that the profits from the book sales go to Club Nook Ltd, a company owned by the family and separate from the charity.

In the interview, Moore said: "These were father's books, and it was honestly such a joy for him to write them, but they were his books.

"He had an agent and they worked on that deal, and his wishes were that that money would sit in Club Nook, and in the end…"

Morgan interjected: "For you to keep?"

“Yes, specifically,” Ingram-Moore said.

She claims that the thousands of people who bought her father’s books were under no illusions that the money was going to charity.

Since Tom’s death in February 2021, the family has been accused of mismanaging the money from his charity, with questions asked about the decision to build a spa at their house with the cash, as well as payments of £18,000 to Ingram-Moore to attend a charity event, despite the fact that she was paid as the chief executive of the charity at the time.

That money was paid to another family company, Maytrix, and Ingram-Moore kept £16,000, donating £2,000 to the foundation.

Ingram-Moore admitted that she could have made 'different decisions'.

When asked by Morgan how ‘it has been’ for her, she wiped a tear and said: “Utterly devastating.”

Elsewhere, she admitted: She said: "I think it's all very easy to look back and think I should have made different ­ decisions, but I hadn't planned on being the CEO."

The full interview between the Ingram-Moore family and Piers Morgan will be broadcast on Talk TV this evening at 8:00pm.
