SRX were guests at the recent SaBRE dinner which took place at Beamish Hall recently. SaBRE is an MOD campaign which provides support for companies who employ British Armed Forces Reservists, and this particular dinner was to recognise local companies who have committed to support the Armed Forces - this being a key part of the SRX mandate as part of our bronze award earlier this year in the Defence Employer Recognition Scheme.
The Defence Employer Recognition Scheme recognises commitment to supporting the Armed Forces. This support can take the form of enabling Reservists to attend training and be mobilised for operational service, to supporting families of Reservist and Regular members of the Armed Forces.
The fantastic evening was attended by a total of 60 guests including Brigadier Gez Strickland, Commander 4th Infantry Brigade, who presented awards to regional winners of the Silver Defence Employer Recognition Scheme - something SRX aspires to achieve in the forthcoming years.
