During the appeal hearings, it emerged that the Captain Tom Foundation will close following an investigation by the Charity Commission, with the couple giving no particular reasons for its closure.
Charity Commission investigation
The couple have insisted that a spa pool, gym and office complex at their Grade II listed former rectory in Marston Moretaine were intended to help older people overcome loneliness and rehabilitate after illness.
It comes as Mrs Ingram-Moore, 52, revealed last month that her family had pocketed £800,000 in profits from three of her father’s books, published separately for the foundation.
In an interview with TalkTV’s Piers Morgan, he said his father wanted the family to benefit from his books, adding that there was no suggestion that anyone who bought them thought they were donating to a charity.
In July, the Charity Commission launched an investigation into the foundation after identifying concerns about the charity’s management and its independence from Sir Tom’s family.
