Sarah Kenny, Chief Executive, BMT
I am delighted that BMT are continuing to support the UK Armed Forces Winter Sports Association (UKAFWSA). As we have learned to live with COVID we have all become aware of our resilience and personal strength; at the same time, we should reflect on our vulnerabilities and appreciate the commitment and sacrifice of those who have given their all to public service, notably the armed forces who were at the fore of the COVID response in the UK whilst also delivering their core tasks in defending the realm and UK interests overseas. Much of this work goes unseen but is appreciated.
In supporting the UKAFWSA, BMT not only recognises the efforts of the individuals and teams in the competition but also all those in the Services who grow in stature through grass roots sport. Resilience and wellbeing should not be taken for granted and BMT share the belief that all levels of Services’ sport provides a critical opportunity to hone mental and physical fitness and provide the confidence to continue to triumph in the face of adversity.
