Morrisons has announced a 10 per cent discount on shopping for all NHS heroes to support them through the Covid-19 pandemic.

The offer from the supermarket giant, which has a store in Wood Lane, Dagenham, comes into effect from Thursday April 16.

It is intended as a way of saying thank you to the country’s 1.5million National Health Service workers and lasts until July 12 when it will be reviewed.

It is the latest in a raft of measures introduced by Morrisons including its shopping hour to make sure NHS staff can get hold of groveries as well as a click and collect food box service from hospital car parks.

Morrisons chief executive David Potts said: “This discount is our thank you to all those working in the National Health Service at this very difficult time.
