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 to 7am, Monday to Saturday, before Morrisons stores open to other customers.
