Derek Lawlor, chief merchandising officer at Asda, said: “Blue Light Card holders work in difficult and dangerous situations every day of the year to provide support to people across the UK who need it the most.
“We wanted to recognise this and thank them for everything they do by offering a discount in our stores this Christmas.”
Tom Dalby, CEO at Blue Light Card, said: “Asda has always done so much to show its appreciation to NHS staff and other frontline workers, and this partnership will help millions of blue light workers in the country. After last year’s restrictions, this Christmas will feel particularly special for those who were unable to see their loved ones during the festive period in 2020.
“It’s often the norm for so many of our members to work long hours in the run up to the big day, but at Asda they can save so much time on their Christmas shop by buying everything under one roof. I hope they take advantage of this exclusive 10% discount to save on their tree, their turkey, their board games and even their Christmas jumper.
“We really want to say thank you to our members for doing everything they can to help protect the most vulnerable this year, and every year.”
