Captain Tom himself was a director of Whitaker Global when it was set up in January 2015. It one of five businesses run by his daughter Hannah Ingram-Moore
Sir Captain Tom Moore’s daughter Hannah Ingram-Moore has made another big loss at one of her five companies.
The devastating blow comes just days after her family was told it needed to tear down the luxury spa built in the grounds of their £1.2million home. Mrs Ingram-Moore, 53, and husband Colin were told they will have to demolish the facility for good after it was ruled that the outbuilding was erected illegally.
It has now been revealed that Mrs Ingram-Moore’s consultancy company Whitaker Global Limited made more than £38,000 less profit last year. It’s total assets went from £54,591 to £16,460 between 2022 and 2023, according to accounts she filed.
Captain Tom himself was a director of Whitaker Global when it was set up in January 2015 and was listed at Companies House as providing “management consultancy activities other than financial management’, but he was removed from the position just two months later.
The veteran father shot to fame during the coronavirus pandemic by walking lap of his garden, raising millions for the NHS, but his daughter has come under scrutiny for the money she made and a luxury spa that was built on the family’s estate in Bedfordshire.
The family came under fire when they built the spa at the family home in Marston Moretaine, Bedfordshire, in 2021. Originally meant as a hub for the Captain Tom Foundation which launched upon the veteran fundraiser’s death earlier that year, Mrs Ingram-Moore later submitted retrospective planning permission after it was built with a pool, spa and changing facilities.
The planning permission was rejected earlier this year, but the demolition was put on hold while the family appealed. During the appeal process the family’s lawyer set out their case for keeping the complex. It was heard the Foundation was to fold following controversy surrounding money raised from the late-veteran’s rise to fame.
Planning inspector Diane Fleming said the “scale and massing” of the building had “resulted in harm” to The Old Rectory – the Grade II listed family home in Marston Moretaine, Bedfordshire. And neighbour Jill Bozdogan, 70, whose home is overlooked by the spa, said: “The sooner they tear it down the better.
“It doesn’t blend in with the two original buildings. For me it was something you can see from all my back windows – upstairs and downstairs. Every time I go into the garden it makes me so cross. It does nothing for the surroundings here. My mum is 99 and lives with me. She liked to go and sit in the garden, but she rarely does now because of that building.”
