Sarah said, “I am so pleased to have had the honour and privilege of receiving The Armed Forces Covenant Award. It is the nation’s commitment to those who proudly protect our nation with honour and courage, a cause very close to my heart.
“It is a pledge, that together, we acknowledge and understand that those who serve or have served in the armed forces, along with their families, should be treated with fairness and respect in our communities, economy and society, which they serve with their lives.
“I would like to thank each and every member of The British Armed Forces for serving and protecting us. For any business people, heads of organisations and people of influence, who may be considering applying for a Covenant, I echo the words “ask not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for your country.”
Association Regional Employer Engagement Director, Jon Beake, said, “It’s fantastic that Sarah Ali Choudhury has joined businesses across the South West that have pledged their support by adopting their own Armed Forces Covenants; its been a pleasure tailoring the pledges for her to make it relevant and mutually beneficial.”
