Two transport organisations are set to visually show support for the Armed Forces this week by wearing specially designed Reserves Day t-shirts into work.

Bulk Freight (Midlands) Ltd and Fred Sherwood Group Ltd based on Trent Lane in Castle Donington, currently employ a number of military service leavers and have printed t-shirts for each of them to wear on Reserves Day to show their support for the Armed Forces community.

Both organisations recognise the vast amount of transferable skills that can be brought into the civilian workplace by those who have received military training such as leadership, management and organisational skills so wanted to publically show their support when going about their daily duties.

Reserves Day is taking place on 21 June and is organised to recognise the valuable contribution reservists make to our Armed Forces.

Reservists give up their spare time to serve in the Reserve Forces, balancing their civilian life with a military career to ensure that should their country require them, they would be ready to serve as part of the military.

Andy Disney, Company Secretary at both Bulk Freight (Midlands) Ltd and Fred Sherwood Group Ltd, said: “We have had a t-shirt printed for each of our drivers who have previously served with the military to show them we recognise the valuable contribution they make to our business.

“This is the first time we have taken part in Reserves Day as an organisation and we have received excellent feedback from the team so far. I’m sure our customers will equally be as enthusiastic and supportive.”
