In the week that the nation paused to remember those who have lost their lives in service of their country, we are proud to make a public statement of our support and commitment to the Armed Forces.
Leaders from six businesses across North Wales and Greater Manchester joined us at an official ceremony hosted at our new Adrenaline Indoors facility to sign the Armed Forces Covenant.
The Covenant is a pledge which recognises that those who serve or who have served in the armed forces, and their families, should be treated with fairness and respect in the communities, economy and society they serve with their lives.
Other businesses pledging their support with us this week included Tree Frog Digital, Flexible Lifestyle Employment, Kick Start 2 Employment, Gatewen Training Services and Anchor Group Services.
Greater Manchester based One Stop Hire, which is led by our board director Steve Hitchen, also signed up to the Covenant.
The ceremony was officiated by Colonel Nick Lock OBE, Deputy Commander, 160th (Welsh) Brigade, and attended by Welsh Assembly Member for North Wales, Mark Isherwood.
Shenkin, the Regimental Goat of the 3rd Battalion, The Royal Welsh, was also in attendance with The Goat Major, Sergeant Jackson, alongside military personnel from RAF Valley, Delta Company, 3rd Battalion, The Royal Welsh. After the formalities were completed, our guests enjoyed lunch and enjoyed trying some of our new Adrenaline Indoors adventures.
Signing up to the Covenant was a no brainer for us: we’ve established strong links with the military since we opened in August 2015, working closely with the Help for Heroes sports recovery team as part of their surf therapy programme.
We also recognise the significant value, experience and expertise that former service men and women and military reserves can add to any organisation, and we wholeheartedly support them. It’s great to be able to make that a public pledge by signing up to the Covenant.
At the same event, we also signed up to Disability Confident, a pledge to support the inclusion of people with health issues or disabilities as part of their workforce.
Armed Forces Family Discount
We are delighted to mark our pledge to the Covenant by launching a new Armed Forces Family Discount, which offers a 30% discount on adventure activities and accommodation to serving members and veterans of the Armed Forces.
