The Tank Museum’s Tiger Day event will be live streamed to audiences around the world for the first time ever on Saturday 23 April, 1600 BST, in association with World of Tanks.
The four-hour event, featuring the world’s only running Tiger I tank, will include a fundraiser for War Child UK to assist their work in Ukraine supporting the children affected by the conflict.
Hosted by Museum Director Richard Smith and World of Tank’s Richard Cutland, viewers will be treated to new Tiger-related content, guest interviews and some unique views of the Tiger Day vehicle display.
Spokesman Nik Wyness said; “Tiger 131 is the most famous tank in the world, and we’re excited to be able to share our Tiger Day event with a global online audience for the first time.
“We, with our partners World of Tanks, are also pleased to be able to use this opportunity to raise awareness of the War Child UK Ukraine emergency fund – which is something we feel the audience will be eager to support.”
Throughout the livestream viewers will be able to donate to War Child via The Tank Museum website and by buying exclusive World of Tanks in-game emblems.
David Miller, Head of Gaming Partnerships at War Child UK said; “At War Child UK we are committed to putting children first. This means we aim to be there as quickly as possible when conflict breaks out, as well as continuing to provide critical support to children living in war zones around the world.
“To do that, we rely heavily on our fundraising efforts and the generosity of our supporters to reach the children who need us most – and thanks to the team at Wargaming and The Tank Museum, we will be able to reach thousands of children who desperately need our support now and in the future.”
