Tickets For Troops (ticketsfortroops.org.uk) is a charity that was set up in 2009 to recognise the brave servicemen and women of our Armed Forces. We recognise the troops’ commitment, drive and dedication by offering them, on behalf of our donors, free tickets to events which they can share with their loved ones, as a small acknowledgement of the work they do. We have over 160,000 troops registered to the charity.
Tickets For Troops has allocated over 950,000 tickets to our nation’s heroes in the last seven years demonstrating the enormous support and respect our UK sports, music, theatre and entertainment industries have for our military men and women.
