The Veterans Awards is an initiative founded by ex-military recognising English & Welsh Veterans in Business, Fitness, Sport and the wider Community.
With two different award nights to be established for the ex-military community that has taken the risk of small businesses and turned them into a thriving business that allows the former service personnel to continue their independence, whilst offering their own communities the chance to help them progress. With the increase of small business throughout the UK it has not gone unseen by the ex-military communities as they see a gap in the market when transitioning into the civilian street.
With the development of these businesses, it allows the support of service personnel to be a part of their companies as employees, or even just to provide a stepping stone into the civilian workplace.
- With the English Awards night to be held on next year awards on the 25th September 2019 at the Mercure Holland House, Bristol and will be hosted by Capital Fm's DJ the Amazing Polly James.
- The Welsh Awards night to be held This year’s awards will be held on 26th June 2019 at the Village Hotel, Swansea and will be hosted by Capital FM’s DJ the Amazing Polly James.
Co-Founder of the Veterans Awards Sean Molino of Forces Fitness said “As a Former Queens Guardsman, Junior Non-Commissioned Officer and Physical Training Instructor, the aim of these awards is to promote veterans that are doing great things on Civvy Street. We want to promote all shortlisted applicants through a series of Video Blogs, Social media releases, and our website, so that they will act as Role models for future service leavers… I want our Veterans Awards and social media presence to become a place where serving military and veterans can discover some great advice and tips from veterans, who are doing truly inspirational things upon leaving the military. I hope we can inspire future service leavers that great things can be achieved with help and support.”
Co-Founder Wesley Skene of WS Marketing said “Our military make huge sacrifices on our behalf. When they retire from service, their contribution to society continues. It's only right that we take time to highlight their outstanding achievements...These awards will once again give us an opportunity to thank our truly outstanding veteran community.”
