This initiative is part of Tesco’s headline sponsorship of Armed Forces Day for the second year running. The event takes place in Falmouth to recognise the incredible contribution that members of the Armed Forces community make to our lives.
Ashwin Prasad, Chief Product Officer at Tesco and Exec Sponsor of the Armed Forces Network, said: “Once again, we’re proud to be the headline sponsor of Armed Forces Day. We can’t wait to see the streets of Falmouth come to life over the weekend marking the incredible contribution that the armed forces make to our country. Everyone loves a free breakfast and it’s a great way of showing how much we value members of the Armed Forces.”
Rhys Little, Chair of the Armed Forces Network at Tesco, said: “We take great pride in our connection with the Armed Forces and we are the number one employer in the UK for veterans when they leave. We’ve received the Gold award from the Defence Employer Recognition Scheme twice now (in 2016 and 2020), and we were also the first retailer to sign the Armed Forces Covenant in 2014.”
Over the weekend, Local events will be taking place in towns, cities, and villages up and down the country, with Falmouth will be at the heart of the celebrations. It promises to be a spectacular event, with parades through the town, displays by the Red Arrows, the RAF Falcons Parachute Display Team, and a series of thrilling flypasts.
As well as sponsoring the event, Tesco stores will be holding a nationwide collection for Help for Heroes the weekend including a round-up at till option so customers can easily donate while shop with us.
