Greggs is serving free hot drinks for health and social workers


Greggs is serving free hot drinks to health, social and emergency service workers during the Coronavirus pandemic. 

Britain's beloved bakery announced the news this week via their Instagram account - guaranteeing that health workers will always be able to get their essential caffeine fix without ever having to dig into their pockets.

Greggs is the latest company to show support for the health sector, which is being subjected to mounting due to COVID-19.

Greggs' Instagram post reads:

"To say thank you, have a hot drink on us.

"You’re amazing and we salute you. Just pop into the shop and show the team your work badge - they’ll serve you with a smile."

McDonald's, Pret, Mowgli and Hip Hop Chip Shop are just some of the other businesses handing out freebies to healthcare workers - offering frontline staff some much-needed fuel in a bid to beat the rising cases of the virus.

In an official statement, the bakery elaborated on the gesture, commenting:

"Greggs has a long-standing history of supporting the communities that we serve, and we’ll continue to help the Greggs Foundation donate unsold food to good causes and deliver the programmes that support those in need.

"In addition, we’ll be offering all emergency service personnel and health and social care workers free hot drinks on presentation of their work pass. They are doing an amazing job, and this is the least we can do to support them."
