Tickets for Troops - THE BRIT AWARDS THANK SOLDIER FOR 25 YEARS SERVICE


 

The BRIT Awards 2016 with MasterCard has yet again generously invited the UK's Armed Forces to join them at this year's star-studded event by donating 200 highly sought after tickets through the charity Tickets For Troops.

2016 marks the sixth year the BRIT Awards have supported our country's Armed Forces by giving troops unforgettable opportunities to watch stars such as Coldplay, Adele and Justin Bieber.

WO1 Andrew Murray, originally from Worcester, is currently based at Denison Barracks in Hermitage. He is one of 100 lucky service personnel who will be attending The BRIT Awards 2016 with MasterCard through the charity Tickets For Troops ( www.ticketsfortroops.org.uk).
WO1 Murray, who has been serving with the British Army for twenty six years, is extremely excited to be given the opportunity to attend such a prestigious event along with his wife.
When asked what he thought about The BRIT Awards donating tickets to service personnel he said, "It shows great recognition of the Armed Forces. It is fantastic to see that we are still at the forefront of people's minds and that the work we do is recognised whether we are at home or away."
Veronica Bamford, Director of Operations at Tickets For Troops said "Once again the organisers behind The BRIT Awards have pulled out all the stops for our fantastic servicemen and women. They are an organisation who proudly stand alongside us to recognise the incredible work our troops do for our country."
Tickets For Troops was set up in 2009 to provide free tickets to the Armed Forces for sports, music, theatre, cultural and entertainment events across the UK.
The charity has distributed over 830,000 free tickets in the last 6 years and is proud to offer tickets to troops which they can share with their loved ones, as a small acknowledgement and reward for the work they do for our country.
Tickets are available for current serving members of the Armed Forces and those who have been medically discharged since 2001. Individuals can apply for tickets online atwww.ticketsfortroops.org.uk
