Stagecoach in South Wales is helping to support Armed Forces Day 2016.
On Saturday 25 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.
Stagecoach in South Wales are supporting Caerphilly County Borough Council in the events planned for Caerphilly Town Centre and it is hoped that personnel will take up the offer to travel across South Wales to the event of their choice.
Stagecoach in South Wales, Managing Director Nigel Winter said; “We are delighted to be showing support for the Armed Forces communities in South Wales in this way. By providing free travel to military personnel we hope to be able to give a well deserved morale boost for 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.
