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 in towns and cities around the North-east, including Redcar, Stockton, Hartlepool, Sunderland, Newcastle, bus chiefs hope personnel will take up the offer to travel to the event of their choice. More information about events throughout the region can be found here www.armedforcesday.org.uk/find-events .
Steve Walker, Stagecoach North East managing director, said; “We are delighted to once again be supporting our Armed Forces communities 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.”
