After signing the Military Corporate Covenant in December last year, leading law firm, Harrison Clark Rickerbys, continues to show its support to the Armed Forces Community by joining in SSAFA’s #My Salute Campaign.
Following the end of combat operations and subsequent withdrawal of forces from Afghanistan in late 2014, our Armed Forces personnel, both regular and reserve, are heading home and Harrison Clark Rickerbys has, together with ex-forces personnel and local business owners, joined in with SSAFA’s #MySalute Campaign, in order to welcome them back.
Rebecca Kirk, Solicitor and part of the Defence Security and the Forces Team at Harrison Clark Rickerbys, said; “Our Armed Forces personnel in the British Army, Royal Navy, Royal Marines and the Royal Air Force have spent the last 13 years in Afghanistan and sharing our salute as part of SSAFA’s #MySalute Campaign gives us a chance to acknowledge the huge sacrifice that our Forces and their families have made and to extend our gratitude to them. However, as the major military operation in Afghanistan draws to a close, we cannot afford to forget that the work of our armed forces will continue across the world and, as such, the needs of serving personnel and their families will continue long after the conflict ends. I am therefore extremely proud to work for a firm that recognises the commitment, professionalism and dedication that our troops demonstrate every day.”
As one of its key sectors, the Defence, Security and the Forces Team at Harrison Clark Rickerbys provides a full range of legal services to Military Personnel, both past and present, as well as to their families. As leading experts in the Defence field, the Firm already has a strong ethos of championing organisations which support our Forces, such as The Royal British Legion and Help for Heroes. It is pleased to extend that support to SSAFA by supporting their #MySalute Campaign and encouraging local businesses to do the same. As one of the UK’s oldest Military Charities, SSAFA provides lifelong and much needed support to anyone who is serving, or has ever served in the Armed Forces, as well as to their families.
