#Salute our Forces, as Hovertravel celebrates Armed Forces Day
To help celebrate Armed Forces Day (Saturday 29th June), Hovertravel showed its support by collecting salutes from its staff and posting them across its social media networks.
The #SaluteOurForces initiative was a simple way for anyone to pay tribute to the British Armed Forces community for their hard work and dedication in keeping us safe in the UK and across the globe. Hovertravel staff from across the business, including pilots, cashiers, crew, engineers, finance and admin staff have joined in to say thank you.
Loretta Lale, Head of Commercial at Hovertravel, explains: “Hovertravel has a proud history of helping military service personnel. We have an ongoing 20% discount for all active armed forces through the Defence Discount card scheme and we are looking to launch an offer for veterans with Veterans Outreach Support. In the 54 years since we started, we have always had staff who were ex-military and today we also have two workers who started with us and are planning to go on to a career in the Royal Navy.”
