Forces-friendly employers to be honoured


All four of Her Majesty’s Lord-Lieutenants of Yorkshire will come together later this month to pay tribute to 17 of the region’s most forces-friendly employers.

Joining them at the virtual ceremony will be representatives of the region’s Armed Forces as well as the Reserve Forces and Cadets Association for Yorkshire and the Humber, which organises the event.
