McDonald’s giving away free drinks to NHS, council and emergency service staff

Fast food chain McDonald's is giving away free drinks to frontline staff during the Coronavirus.

All NHS, council and emergency service staff will be eligible for the freebie, which the chain is offering as a 'thank you' for the 'tireless work' health and care workers are doing to fight the spread of the pandemic.

All workers will need to do is show their work pass at their local restaurant or drive thru branches to receive the free hot or cold drink item from the menu.

As reported in The Sun a spokesperson from McDonald's said: "We want to use our UK and Ireland footprint to thank, reward and support the health and care workers doing an incredible job in difficult and unprecedented times.

"This offer is a token of our appreciation for the tireless work that these professionals are carrying out in the communities in which we operate."

"From today we are offering free drinks for those workers in our restaurants and Drive Thrus, on sight of their work pass."

The move, which launched yesterday will continue throughout the pandemic.
