8,000 NHS workers can snap up tickets for next year’s Bedford Park Proms for just £1, thanks to the promoter, Mark Harrison.
The incredible offer was announced at this year’s finale to the Bedford Park Concerts’ weekend by Captain Sir Tom Moore’s daughter Hannah Ingram-Moore.
Captain Tom became an international phenomenon as he raised £38.9million for NHS charities by walking lengths of his Bedfordshire garden ahead of his 100th birthday.
Ms Ingram-Moore told the Sunday night crowd that the money raised by the sale of the 8,000 tickets will be donated straight back to The Bedford Hospital Charity by way of thanking “our amazing NHS.”
She said: “Thank you for ensuring my father’s lasting legacy of hope lives on.”
Bedford Park Proms celebrated its 25th anniversary on Sunday night, however, the music came to a halt for Hannah and Captain Tom’s grandson, Benjie, to talk about their late father/grandfather and his amazing legacy and achievement of raising £38.9m in three and a half weeks, with donations from 163 countries.
Hannah Ingram-Moore continues to raise further funds and awareness in her Fathers honour, at The Captain Tom Foundation.
Speaking to the crowd, Benjie said: “Please treasure your parents, please treasure your grandparents, they are absolutely incredible, please don’t take them for granted. Living with my grandfather was my biggest pleasure.”
Bedford Park Proms 25th Anniversary (Part 2) takes place on Sunday 31 July 2022.
Tickets for NHS workers are on sale and can be purchased here.
