Major Chains Are Offering Free Food And Drink To NHS Workers This Week
A number of food and drink chains are offering free food and drink to all NHS workers this week.
The likes of McDonald's, Domino's and Pret A Manger have all shared how they plan to support those working within the NHS as a way of saying thank you for all their incredible work in fighting the coronavirus pandemic.
McDonald's is offering NHS staff, council and emergency services free drinks, with a spokesperson explaining: "We want to use our UK and Ireland footprint to thank, reward and support the health and care workers doing an incredible job in difficult and unprecedented times.
"This offer is a token of our appreciation for the tireless work that these professionals are carrying out in the communities in which we operate.
"From today we are offering free drinks for those workers in our restaurants and Drive Thrus, on sight of their work pass."
It comes as McDonald's announced they would be closing the seating areas of its restaurants, switching only to takeaway, Drive-Thru or McDelivery.
Meanwhile, Pret announced today that it would be offering free drinks as well as 50 per cent off everything else for NHS workers.
Writing on Instagram, Pret said: "Dear NHS workers, your hot drinks are on the house from today and we'll take 50 per cent off everything else.
"Thank you for everything you are doing. We look forward to serving you."
Domino's is also showing its support, offering a free pizza to all NHS staff at select stores on Friday 20th March.
Writing on Facebook, the fast-food chain said: "We want to say thank you to all of our doctors, nurses and NHS staff who are working tirelessly day and night to keep us safe in these difficult times.
"This Friday we are giving free pizza to all NHS staff across all of our DS Group Domino's branches.

Mark Jones, CEO of Carluccio's said: "We are all being hit hard by the current crisis, and our thoughts go out to the incredible NHS staff who are on the frontline, working day and night to save lives and help the vulnerable.
"There is no end date for this crisis and as such, we will be offering all NHS workers a 50% discount for the foreseeable future. We hope that this small gesture can bring a little comfort to our unsung heroes".
