Superfast IT is shortlisted for Outstanding Support to the Armed Forces in this year’s Black Country Chamber of Commerce Business Awards.
More than 60 businesses have been shortlisted across 14 categories following a record number of applications. Winners will be announced at a gala evening at Wolverhampton Race Course on Friday16th September.
It is the first time the awards ceremony will take place in person since 2019 due to coronavirus restrictions. We are thrilled to be part of the prestigious awards evening.
Superfast IT is shortlisted alongside Phoenix Collegiate, Tough Enough to Care and Wolverhampton Lawn Tennis Club. I extend our congratulations to all the nominees. Your ongoing support to the Armed Forces community is commendable and I hope our combined efforts inspire more businesses to sign the Armed Forces Covenant.
The Armed Forces Covenant recognises that government and the nation have an obligation to treat the armed forces community fairly. It is supported by the government, local communities and businesses to encourage support for the armed forces community and promote public understanding and awareness. The covenant is a public pledge from organisations that wish to demonstrate their support for the armed forces community, based upon two main principles:
no member of the armed forces community should face a disadvantage in the provision of public and commercial services compared to any other citizen.
in some circumstances, special treatment may be appropriate, especially for the injured or bereaved.
