MORRISONS has announced today it is offering those in the emergency services, care workers and armed forces who hold a blue light card ​a 10 per cent discount on their shopping.

The move follows on from the 10 per cent discount offered by Morrisons to NHS and school staff.

The Blue Light Card is a recognised national scheme which provides card holders with a range​ of discounts from large national retailers to local businesses including holidays, days out and insurance.

The Morrisons discount, which is valid till after Christmas, is a thank you to the thousands of key workers including social care workers who have gone above and beyond their usual roles to provide care and support to the British public throughout the coronavirus pandemic this year.

Blue Light Card holders will also be able to participate in a dedicated shopping hour alongside NHS workers and school staff from 6am-7am (Mon-Sat) before Morrisons stores open to other customers.
