Stagecoach South is offering free bus travel to Armed Forces personnel and veterans on Remembrance Sunday
Stagecoach South is supporting military personnel past and present this Remembrance Sunday (10 November 2019).
On Remembrance Sunday Stagecoach South will also be offering free travel to Armed Forces personnel carrying a military ID card and to veterans wearing the veteran’s badge.
Remembrance Sunday is a day for the nation to remember and honour those who have sacrificed themselves to secure and protect our freedom.
With Remembrance services planned at memorials in the local area it is hoped that personnel wishing to pay their respects will take up the offer to travel across Hampshire and West Sussex to the service of their choice.
Edward Hodgson, Managing Director of Stagecoach South said; “Once again, we are proud to be supporting Remembrance Sunday in this way. Many of our employees are either ex-serving personnel or have friends and family who are in the armed forces, so it’s a cause very close to our hearts."
“Through our support we hope we can send a clear message to our Armed Forces communities in Sussex, Surrey and Hampshire that we appreciate and recognise the commitment they have made to our country over the years.”
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.
