Working long shifts during the winter months can start to take its toll, but a well deserved treat can help to lift the mood.
In honour of those who work in the emergency services, NHS, social care and armed forces, a number of bars and restaurants across the UK are offering special discounts throughout February.
More than 40 discounts
More than 40 special offers at food and drink establishments across the UK will be available to workers who have a Blue Light Card.
The various offers can only be accessed via the Blue Light Card membership, which is the UK’s largest discount service for public sector workers.
Blue Light Card is partnered with nearly 8,000 retailers both locally and nationally, with more than 1.5 million members across the country, and it is hoped the offers will allow workers to relax this month.
Alex Dalby, head of partnerships at Blue Light card, explained: “NHS workers and emergency services traditionally work long shifts in the winter months, as pressure on our public services is particularly high.
“We know from our membership that it can be really tough to spend any time with loved ones, let alone take an afternoon or an evening out to relax and enjoy each other’s company.
“We hope these deals and discounts can help bring people closer together, whether that’s on Valentine’s Day itself or throughout February.”
