Blue Light Card’s annual Big Blue Weekend, running from July 1 to July 4, gives emergency services, NHS, social care workers and foster carers special access to a range of discounts across retail, travel and beauty, as well as a number of high-value prize draws to celebrate the NHS’ birthday on July 5. The discount service currently has over two million members and partners with over 15,000 local and national retailers.
Taking place this weekend, the four-day event will mark the NHS’ 74th year in service.
To celebrate, Blue Light Card is offering time-limited discounts from the likes of Charlotte Tilbury and Hotels.com, as well as big prizes, including a stay at Warwick Castle and a Butlin’s Family Holiday.
Tom Dalby, CEO of Blue Light Card, said: “We are thrilled to announce our very first Big Blue Weekend, allowing us and our partners to demonstrate our continued thanks and appreciation to those that give so much to keep the nation safe and healthy.”
“With the summer holidays fast approaching, and especially in light of the cost of living crisis, we hope that this weekend will help our members out with treats and days out that otherwise may not have been possible.
