Whitbread restaurants’ help heroes tuck in to a hearty discount

Whitbread today (September 16th 2019) reveals that its restaurants’ business has collaborated with Blue Light Card (BLC) to provide a discount off food ordered from the main restaurant menu, for those who work for the NHS, the emergency services and Armed Forces.

 The owner of Beefeater, Brewers Fayre and other restaurants has partnered with scheme to celebrate its 10th anniversary - giving those who put their life on the line as well as doctors, nurses, police and fire service personnel plus selected other public sector workers an amazing discount when dining with family or friends.

BLC, the UK's biggest Emergency Service, NHS and Armed Forces discount provider, started in September 2008 and has since welcomed over a million members within the last 10 years, providing in store and online discount to people who put others before themselves every day.  

Whitbread is pleased to launch its BLC discount for its restaurants’, meaning card holders can take advantage of the food bill in their restaurants nationwide, including Beefeater, Brewers Fayre, Table Table, Thyme, Bar + Block and Cookhouse and Pub.  

To redeem the offer card holders simply need to show they have a BLC membership to the server when ordering and present it when the bill is requested.  

Phil Birbeck, Managing Director of Whitbread Restaurants said: “The UK’s Armed Forces, NHS workers and Emergency Service personnel are among the thousands of public sector workers who do us proud on a daily basis. We are delighted to offer one of the Blue Light Card’s meal discount as a small token of our appreciation for the outstanding work they do”.  

Becoming part of the BLC family is an important step towards Whitbread’s Force for Good sustainability programme commitment to make a meaningful impact to the communities they are a part of and enabling all of our guests to live and work well through this benefit.  

Whitbread has also recently announced its military recruitment scheme by joining forces with the Ministry of Defence to help veterans get back into work, making it easier for spouses and partners of serving personnel to find jobs in the UK.
