Colin wins Britain’s Got Talent!
Sunday, June 2nd.
Many congratulations to our newest Ambassador Colin Thackery, winner of Britain’s Got Talent 2019. Colin, who is 89 and a Chelsea Pensioner, received the most public votes in tonight’s live final, watched by millions of viewers. He wins £250,000 and a slot at this year’s Royal Variety Show in November. A retired soldier from the Royal Artillery, we met Colin at the Regiment’s recent annual Assembly, in Blackpool , and he agreed to not only become an Ambassador for the War Horse Memorial to help us raise money for our chosen military and equine charities, but also to be our special guest at our Anniversary Purple Poppy Ball on June 8 at Ascot Racecourse. Well Done Colin from us all. You are a star and a gentleman!
