Toby Carvery is showing its support for the armed forces by inviting military personnel across Exeter to join them for a free breakfast or carvery meal on Armed Forces Day, which this year falls on Saturday 29th June.

The special Armed Forces Day offer is available to serving troops, veterans and reserves across the whole of the British armed forces, as a way of saying thank you for all of their hard work.

To claim their free meal, military personnel just need to download a voucher on the Toby Carvery website or app and present it in their chosen restaurant along with their military ID*. 

Toby Carvery is keen to build on the success of last year, which saw more than 7,000 meals claimed on Armed Forces Day.

This year, the brand has set its biggest giveaway goal to date, with the Toby 10K Challenge aiming to gift a massive 10,000 free meals on Armed Forces Day. To help reach this target, Toby Carvery is calling on military personnel from across Exeter to join them on 29th June and claim their well-deserved free meal.

Martin Gosling, brand operations director for Toby Carvery, said: “Armed Forces Day is the perfect opportunity for us to come together in showing support for our heroes and giving them a huge thank you for their service.

“The response to the offer over the last few years has been absolutely fantastic, and we’re keen to achieve our Toby 10K Challenge by hitting our target of serving at least 10,000 free meals to armed forces members.

“We’re proud to support the incredible men and women in the armed forces and a meal on us is just a small way for us to show our gratitude!”

This isn’t the only new deal awaiting our nation’s heroes. As a year-round thank you, Toby Carvery will also be offering a 20% discount to Defence Discount Service and Blue Light Card holders across all of their restaurants.

Armed Forces Day is celebrated across the UK every year as a chance for the public to show their support for the men and women of the British Army, Royal Navy and Royal Air Force.
