This year’s Armed Forces Day took place on Saturday 29 June 2019. Celebrations took place throughout the week leading up to Armed Forces Day, with Reservists Day also taking place on Wednesday 26 June 2019.
The week culminated in a national event in Salisbury. Sodexo worked with the Armed Forces charity SSAFA to host a Big Brew Up, providing refreshments for staff and visitors.
The #SaluteOurForces campaign took place on social media, asking people to submit pictures of themselves saluting the British Armed Forces. We asked you to join in the celebrations by taking pictures of you and your teams for a chance to win £50 via Recognising You. We had a great response from Sodexo teams all showing their support of the Armed Forces.
We are pleased to announce the winners of the photo competition are…
Snowdon Walkers 2019
On Armed Forces Day, 23 Sodexo employees came together to climb Snowdon raising money for Stop Hunger. The team really got into the spirit of the day by taking photos of them saluting our Armed Forces before, during and at the summit of Snowdon.
So far, the team have raised most of their £3,000 target, so to help them reach their goal, the £50 will be donated directly to their fundraising campaign in support of Stop Hunger. If you would like to continue the fundraising spirit, please click here.
Congratulations to the Snowdon Walkers and thank you to those who took part across the region to #SaluteOurForces.
As part of our ongoing commitment to our Armed Forces, we are setting up a Veterans and Reservists employee network, and want to hear from those Reservists, Cadet Force Adult Volunteers, and Veterans in the business who are keen to get involved - please click here to submit your details, and tell us what you want from the network.
