Rewards for forces

When we heard that a member of the Armed Forces, who had recently returned from military operations, was denied a discount in a major high street store, but a student in front of him was given one, we knew we had to act. Reward for Forces is a national discount scheme that offers serving members of the forces, veterans and their families’ premium discounts and benefits - Rewarding those that have served our country.
