Armed Forces Covenant – 20% Discount
The reason this is so important to me is because when I was 17, I said goodbye to my family and joined the R.E.M.E (Royal, Electrical & Mechanical Engineers) After completing my basic training, I realised I didn’t want to be a vehicle mechanic and looked to transfer to the Royal Engineers and become a Design Draughtsman. In 1998 I became the first female Royal Engineer and spent the rest of my 7 years abroad on back to back tours including Bosnia, Kosovo, Afghanistan & Iraq.
My time spent within the Army has without doubt helped to mould me into the person I am today. The people I worked with became family and living in environments such as Afghanistan gave me experiences not many 19 year olds get to have (some good, some bad, some downright scary) but experiences none the less and everything I did within the Armed forces brought out qualities that in a young person, really shape who you will become later on in life. Thanks to the Armed Forces I grew in confidence and ambition so I feel it’s now time to give back…
This is a pledge that Bottle Buddi commit to honour the Armed Forces Covenant and support the Armed Forces Community. We recognise the value Serving Personnel, both Regular and Reservists, Veterans and military families contribute to our business and our country. As the business grows, I hope that my support for the Armed Forces can also grow.
I have started by registering my business on the DDS (Defence Discount Service) website. I am offering 20% off to the Armed forces community. This covers Serving Armed Forces, Reservists, Veterans, Forces Family Members, Cadets (over 16), NATO personnel serving in the UK and MOD Civil Servants.
It feels good to give back 😊
