Members of the emergency services and armed forces with a Blue Light Card will now be able to get 10% off their shopping in Morrisons stores nationwide.

The discount, which is available from today, follows on from the 10% discount offered by Morrisons to NHS and School Staff across the United Kingdom.

The Blue Light Card is a recognised national scheme available to members of the emergency services, social care sector, and armed forces in the UK.

David Potts, Morrisons Chief Executive, said: “Our emergency services, social care sector and armed forces have worked tirelessly this year to provide support to the many people who need it across the UK, often in exceptionally difficult circumstances. This discount is a thank you for all that they have done and continue to do for us all.”

How does the discount work?

Shoppers who have a valid Blue Light ID can present their card at the checkout of their shop.

The discount is valid till after Christmas, and can be used with a Morrisons More card and any promotional coupons or Morrisons £5 voucher.

Card holders can claim the 10% discount on their groceries by presenting their Blue Light ID card at the till in any of Morrisons 498 stores nationwide.

For more information, including terms and conditions, shoppers can visit the Morrisons website.
