LIVE Aid Experience, a concert paying tribute to the historic benefit in 1985, is offering free tickets to its Trowbridge performance for people who work in the health, fire or police services or the military.

The production will be on Friday, August 18, from 7.30pm at Trowbridge Civic Centre. Tickets cost £18 or services personnel can get two for free by producing their Blue Light Card at the box office.

The Live Aid Experience will be performed by a live band paying homage to the classic acts who played in the original event 32 years ago, including Elton John, Status Quo, David Bowie and Queen.

Organiser Will Norton said: “Men and women in the services do a lot for us and we wanted to give back and say thank in our own way. The show is a great fun night and when we have done this before it was a great success!”

Special BLC npower energy tariff

npower has launched its ‘Everyday Heroes Fix’, a new tariff exclusively for employees of the emergency services, NHS and Armed Forces, who hold either Blue Light Card or Defence Discount Service memberships. The tariff is on average npower’s most competitive deal* and fixes energy prices until December 2018, offering these everyday heroes a great deal on their energy and protects them from price rises until the end of next year.

The tariff is exclusively available to Blue Light Card or Defence Discount Service members, regardless of whether they are a new or existing npower customer, pay by Direct Debit or on receipt of bill, as long as they manage their account online. The npower offer is available by logging on to bluelightcard.co.uk or defencediscountservice.co.uk.

Anne Chappell Smith, Head of Partnerships at npower, said:

“Our new Everyday Heroes Fix is a first-of-its-kind tariff which has been created to give our best price to the nation’s unsung heroes. We wanted to come up with a great product for military personnel, law enforcement officers, firefighters, ministry of defence and healthcare providers to recognise their special contributions to our community.

“Should they wish to choose our most competitive tariff, these everyday heroes will benefit from a fix deal, greater price certainty and security to help plan and budget their energy costs over the course of the next 18 months.”

Tom Dalby, MD of Blue Light Card said:

“We are extremely pleased that npower is recognising our everyday heroes.  Those in the Emergency Services, NHS and Armed Forces work hard for our communities and within our communities and it is great that npower, as an energy provider, are recognising what these wonderful people do.”
