NHS staff and rail workers can get a free tall filter coffee from Starbucks from today (14 December.)
The popular chain is giving away free coffees to frontline workers to thank them for their efforts during the coronavirus pandemic.
NHS staff, first responders and care workers will be able to claim a free Tall filter coffee as long as they show their work identity card.
All transport workers who show a Rail Staff Travel (RST) card – which offers discounts and free transport for workers of the rail sector and eligible family members – will also be entitled to the free hot beverage.
The free tall filter coffees – which usually cost around £1.60 each depending on the branch – are available from any Starbucks in England, Scotland or Wales.
However, people will need to order the coffee in-store from their nearest branch as the offer is not available on mobile orders or deliveries.
Those eligible will only be able to get one free coffee each.
The announcement follows the launch of Starbucks NHS Charities Together (NHSCT) Christmas fundraising campaign, which started on December 8.
All the money raised from the campaign will provide additional support to NHS workers, volunteers and patients.
This includes mental health support, hot meals, a place for staff to rest during long shifts, as well as funding vital hospice and social care services.
Earlier this week, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were named joint patrons of NHS Charities Together – the couple’s first joint patronage beyond their own Royal Foundation.
