Swindon based contract hire, vehicle lease and fleet management specialist Arval entertained three special guests at its Windmill Hill headquarters on Children in Need day, 15 November.
The West Swindon based company were visited by three Chelsea Pensioners to give employees the chance to meet some ‘real life heroes’ who have represented the British Army.
The pensioners spent the day helping collect money around the building from staff dressed in wacky costumes. Later on they gave a talk about their forces days to employees and answered questions about living at the Royal Hospital in London.
Tracey Scarr for Arval said: “It was a unique opportunity for our employees to meet some real British heroes, hear some of their stories and boost our fundraising at the same time.
"We are extremely grateful to the Chelsea pensioners; they were able to give our Children in Need activities a big boost.”
