Stagecoach Manchester is helping to support Armed Forces Day 2016 by offering free travel to personnel carrying a military ID card, and to veterans carrying a veteran’s badge, on Saturday 25th June.
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 events planned across the Greater Manchester region, it is hoped that current and ex-service men and women will take up the offer to travel to the event of their choice using free Stagecoach Manchester services.
Stagecoach Manchester managing director, Chris Bowles, said; “We’re delighted to be showing support for the Armed Forces communities across Greater Manchester by providing free travel to military personnel, as we hope to be able to give a well-deserved thank you to our local troops.”
Last year, 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.
