As the first quarter of this year came to a close, I could not help but continue to be amazed, delighted and humbled at seeing what we achieve at XFE for the armed forces community on a regular basis.
From the word ‘go’, the team’s focus remains firmly on building on the strength of what we have built so far – finding new synergies with our partners in the Military, Corporate, Charities and Government, while creating entrepreneurial opportunities for our beneficiaries.
As a team, we have not had much time to stop and reflect, as our pace is fast and our days are full. However, the rewards are many and continuous – including the unique initiatives we are launching and the fantastic businesses we are helping to grow.
It was only in February that we surpassed yet another milestone, having now lent over £11 million to the Armed Forces community to help veterans and their families to start their own businesses. Yet, since then, we have had more milestone events, initiatives and outstanding moments.
