Explaining more about the importance of the campaign, Tom Dalby, CEO of Defence Discount Service, said: “Since our launch in 2012, we have worked closely with the UK defence community, offering support both through our exclusive discounts from fantastic brand partners and by providing a community where British armed forces, veterans, spouses and defence workers can come together.

“We know how hard our UK defence teams work each and every day to keep us all safe, but we thought International Women’s Day was the perfect opportunity to celebrate those women who have gone the extra mile over the past year. We’d encourage all members of the defence community - whether male or female - to nominate their inspirational women and join us in celebrating all their hard work.”

The winning Defence Discount Service Inspirational Woman in Defence will be announced on 9th April 2021, with the winner set to receive a £250 gift card from Virgin Experience Days.
