Tickets For Troops - Brit Awards 2017 tickets available

The prestigious BRIT Awards 2017 with MasterCard is backing the Armed Forces by donating TWO HUNDRED tickets to troops for the star-studded award ceremony through the charity Tickets For Troops.
Servicemen and women from across the United Kingdom will have the chance to see performances from music superstars including Ed Sheeran, The 1975, Robbie Williams and many more at London’s O2 Arena on 22 February 2017.
Royal Marine, Captain Alan Hewett from Exeter has served for 20 years and is one of 100 lucky service personnel who will be attending The BRIT Awards 2017 with Mastercard through Tickets For Troops (www.ticketsfortroops.org.uk).
Over the last two decades, Captain Hewett has spent many months away from his family and friends whilst serving on operational tours including Iraq, Northern Ireland, Libya and six tours of Afghanistan.
Captain Hewett said: “If it wasn’t for people like Tickets For Troops, we wouldn’t have these opportunities. This is a lovely way for me and my wife to enjoy a fantastic night out that few people will have the chance to go to.”
Royal Navy Leading Medical Assistant Andy Watson, currently tasked to the Pharmacy at the Defence Medical Rehabilitation Centre Headley Court will also be attending the awards.

Leading Medical Assistant Andy Watson said “The BRIT Awards is such a prestigious event and to be given the opportunity by Tickets For Troops to attend this event is incredible."
Many troops who benefit from Tickets For Troops (www.ticketsfortroops.org.uk) endure long periods of separation from their families due to operational tours and training exercises or living apart from their families during the week.
Veronica Bamford, Director of Operations at Tickets For Troops said “We are very proud of our strong relationship with The BRIT Awards and we are extremely grateful to them for once again providing so many fantastic opportunities for our military heroes to have a well-deserved night out with their loved ones.”

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 980,000 free tickets in the last seven 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.

Organisations who would like to get involved with the charity and donate free tickets to benefit our servicemen and women can get in contact with Tickets For Troops by emailing events@ticketsfortroops.org.uk or calling 0207 932 0808
