Speaking about the cost of living discounts, Tom Dalby, CEO of Blue Light Card, said: "It goes without saying that the UK’s current economic state is placing a huge number of families and individuals in incredibly challenging financial circumstances.

"On top of this, it’s been a busy time for many of our members, with the extreme weather creating issues of drought and increased risk of wildfires around the UK - the blue light community has played an integral part in managing these instances and keeping the UK safe. 

"As a small token of our thanks and to help the UK emergency services, NHS workers, social carers and defence community through these difficult times, we’re pleased to offer an extensive range of exclusive discounts to help ease the everyday cost of living."
