Captain Sir Tom Moore’s charity “tried to give £150k job” to his daughter

A charity in memory of fund-raising hero Captain Sir Tom Moore has been criticised for trying to appoint his daughter as the CEO with a six-figure salary.

The Charity Commission stopped the Captain Tom Foundation giving the job to the late fundraiser’s daughter, Hannah Ingram-Moore.

The Independent newspaper also reports the charity is now the subject of a regulatory compliance report.

Its accounts revealed that “tens of thousands of pounds” had been paid to firms run by Ms Ingram-Moore and her son-in-law.

Captain Sir Tom captured the nation’s heart during the early days of the Covid-19 pandemic.

He raised £39 million for NHS charities by walking up and down his garden.

The Captain Tom Foundation received £1.15 million during its first year as a charity.

Paying Ms Ingram-Moore a salary of £150,00 was more than 13 per cent of its income.

It is alleged the proposed appointment was taken without the job be offered outside.

Stephen Jones, chair of the Foundation’s board of trustees, said:

“The decision to make an application for consent to appoint Hannah Ingram-Moore in a temporary role as interim CEO was made by the independent trustees who undertook a benchmarking exercise to assess an appropriate salary for the role.

“Any discussions with the Charity Commission are highly confidential but reference to a ‘six-figure salary’ is categorically denied.”
