INJURED TROOPS INVITED TO THE BRIT AWARDS 2015
Injured Serviceman Captain Tom Francis of the Rifles, is one of ten lucky service personnel from the Defence Medical Rehabilitation Facility at Headley Court* to be offered a free ticket to tonight's BRIT Awards with Mastercard at The O2.
The Infantry Officer, who was seriously injured in a sporting accident has served across the globe including Kosovo and Afghanistan, but admits that this will be a first.
He said “I’m really looking forwards to seeing Royal Blood in particular. I would like to say thank you to everyone who made this possible, support from organisations like Tickets for Troops provides injured service personnel a chance to rehabilitate and push our limits in a challenging and enjoyable way; for a lot of the patients a trip to London, a meal and a concert is a long day and the enjoyment helps to distract from the hard work. Hopefully we won’t be too much of a distraction for Taylor Swift”.
The BRIT Awards team are extremely proud to be able to support our nations brave service men and women and recognise their commitment to duty.
Captain Francis is one of 200 troops that will experience the star-studded show courtesy of the generous donation from BPI.
*The Defence Medical Rehabilitation Facility at Headley Court, where wounded and injured service personnel receive world class recovery care, enabling them to return to the service of their country or lead a fulfilling life on “civvy street”.
