Rutland Armed Forces Discount scheme available to all veterans
The Rutland Armed Forces Discount Scheme is now available to veterans of all ages.
The scheme, which was launched in 2017, offers discounts on goods and services to all armed forces personnel who are living in Rutland, as well as those moving to the area from elsewhere in the UK or overseas. The scheme is also open to Forces families, reservists, widows and now veterans.
The scheme is so far supported by nearly 50 local businesses, including those from the services, food and leisure sectors, and 54 veterans from across the county have already signed up to receive their discount card.
Councillor Richard Foster, one of Rutland’s Armed Forces Champions, said: "The Armed Forces Discount Scheme is a wonderful initiative with a growing number of fantastic local businesses signing up to support it. I’d encourage all service personnel in Rutland to apply for their Armed Forces Discount card, especially veterans now that they are eligible too.”
