Stagecoach East Scotland supports Armed Forces Day 2018

25 Jun 2018

  • Stagecoach East Scotland is offering free bus travel to armed forces personnel carrying ID on Armed Forces Day
  • Free travel will support events in Aberdeen, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Livingston and Stirling
  • Activity supports ongoing the work of Stagecoach East Scotland to support the armed forces community

 

Stagecoach East Scotland is helping to support Armed Forces Day 2018.

On Saturday 30 June the company will be offering free travel to armed forces personnel carrying a military ID card and to veterans carrying a veteran’s badge.

Armed Forces Day is a chance for the public to show support for the men and women who make up the Armed Forces community: from currently serving troops to Service families, veterans and cadets.

With parades and events planned in Aberdeen, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Livingston and Stirling, it is hoped that personnel will take up the offer to travel across the East of Scotland to the event of their choice.

Paul Thomas, Managing Director, Stagecoach East Scotland said; “We are proud to once again be supporting the armed forces communities in the East of Scotland by providing free travel to military personnel. By helping in this small way we hope send a clear message that Stagecoach East Scotland supports both personnel who are currently serving and those who are veterans.”

In March 2015, Stagecoach Group signed the Ministry of Defence’s Armed Forces Corporate Covenant in support of the Armed Forces Community. As a signatory of the Covenant, the company recognises the value serving personnel; regular and reservists, veterans and military families contribute to both the country and businesses across the country.

Later the same year the company was awarded the silver award through the Ministry of Defence’s Defence Employer Recognition Scheme (ERS). The scheme encourages employers to support defence and inspire others to do the same. The scheme encompasses bronze, silver and gold awards for employer organisations that pledge, demonstrate or advocate support to defence and the armed forces community, and align their values with the    Armed Forces Covenant.
