Earlier in 2023, Sheffield-based Tickets for Good revealed news of Robbie Williams and ie;ventures joining as one of its largest investors, adding to existing investors Bethnal Green Ventures and Comcast SportsTech.

Business expansion followed with the launch of its nationwide Ticket Bank programme, for those in receipt of UK Government cost-of-living payments.

Tickets For Good currently has over 250,000 registered users and has processed over 300,000 free and discounted tickets.

Orris said: “As Tickets For Good prepares to launch in North America, I’m proud to contribute to this important business as a senior advisor, with this team of good people doing great things in an amazing industry.

“The mission of helping clients utilise additional inventory while making a positive contribution to the community is a worthy one; putting fans in seats that are deserving recipients through deed or those in need.”

Mills added: “Live Music is one of the biggest and fastest-growing sectors of the global music business and Tickets For Good is solving the problem of 40% inventory going unsold and getting that inventory to those in need of a great night out through their innovative business model.

“I’m excited to join Tickets For Good during this key growth period, to help take the business to the next level, commercially and globally.”

Stephen Rimmer, founder and CEO, said: “Adding Don and Will to our Advisory Board underlines the strength of our mission-driven business strategy.
