Members of the armed forces will be able to get a free hot breakfast in Abingdon to mark Armed Forces Day this weekend.

Serving personnel, regulars and reservists who present their MOD90 identification card at Tesco Abingdon cafe on Sunday, June 30, will be entitled to a complimentary breakfast.

Now in its third year, the offer has been extended to veterans with a valid veteran’s ID card.

There will be the choice of either the breakfast, the veggie breakfast, the vegan breakfast, a sausage bap, veggie bap or a bacon bap, with one free breakfast handed out per cardholder.

Ashwin Prasad, group chief product officer at Tesco and exec sponsor of the Armed Forces Network, said: "As the largest private employer of Armed Forces veterans in the UK we feel a close affinity with armed forces personnel.

"Everyone loves a free breakfast and it's a nice way of thanking them for their service."

Rhys Little, chair of the Armed Forces Network at Tesco, said: "We take great pride in our connection with the armed forces.

"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."

Armed Forces Day is an annual celebration of the service of men and women in the British Armed Forces.
