The Salisbury Pret A Manger store are offering NHS workers free hot drinks and 50% off everything else

Many of their staff are under pressure as the situation around COVID-19 in the UK develops.

All Pret shops across the country are offering this as they want to say thank you for everything they are doing.

Lorraine Hewitt, a nurse, who lives in Woodfalls has praised the company:

"Only ever been in a Pret once or twice in my life but will make them my coffee house of choice in the future - this support for the NHS is wonderful and even if we don’t actually take up the offer, it is nice to know that there are people/businesses out there wanting to show their backing and support for NHS staff. Thank you Pret."

OTHER MEASURES

In a post on social media, they said:

"Now more than ever, you need to be able to pick up freshly made food quickly. From today, we will be operating mainly as a takeaway business. We will continue to reinforce our strict hygiene standards and do all that we can to look after our team members and all of you."
