Celebrating Scotland’s Veterans
I was privileged to attend not one, but two awards ceremonies celebrating some of the amazing achievements of Scotland’s veterans community.
On Tuesday I was at the Scottish Ex-Forces in Business Awards, a celebration of the achievements veterans in the business world and of businesses that demonstrate commitment to recruiting veterans and ensuring they are supported to reach their full potential in the workplace. It was humbling to be surrounded by so much talent on the night.
I was delighted to chat with Scott, a fundraiser for SSAFA, the beneficiary of the awards night, and meet his companion Lincoln.
On Wednesday I attended the Scottish Veterans awards, recognising our veterans in business, fitness, sport and the wider community, reservists who are doing great things, and the organisations doing great things for veterans and their families.
