CHIEF OF THE DEFENCE STAFF COMMENDS TICKETS FOR TROOPS
We are truly honoured to be able to share with you the fantastic news and award Tickets For Troops received from the Chief of the Defence Staff, General Sir Nicholas Houghton.
On behalf of all who have worked for, donated to and supported Tickets For Troops, he presented the past and present TFT team with the CDS commendation.
CDS commendations are intended to recognise outstanding support and commitment of a rare and exceptionally high standard by non-military individuals or organisations to the Armed Forces community
General Sir Nick said “Since 2009 Tickets For Troops have worked tirelessly to facilitate tickets, from a huge variety of donors to provide its 135,000 registered service personnel with a welcome break from duty and quality time to spend with family and friends. The innovation and drive shown by this small team will culminate in Spring this year when they expect to pass on their 500,000th donated ticket. Their professionalism and diligence in forging relationships across the entertainment and sporting communities deserves recognition.”
Lord Marland, the Chairman of Tickets For Troops said “The CDS commendation took Tickets For Troops completely by surprise. We are delighted that the Armed Forces recognises the magnificent effort of our team. The visit from Chief of the Defence Staff was a morale booster for the team and all those who work on the Executive and Advisory Board as we celebrate our 5th Year and 500,000th ticket.”
