Morrisons is providing a helping hand for NHS staff.

NHS staff are facing unprecedented challenges during the Coronavirus emergency and many are working beyond the call of duty.

A Morrisons spokesman said: "The 10% discount, which comes into effect from Thursday, is a thank you to the 1.5 million National Health Service workers. It will last until July 12 when it will be reviewed.

"The discount for NHS staff is the latest measure being introduced by Morrisons which continues to play its full part in feeding the nation and supporting those battling the coronavirus outbreak"

Editor’s note: first and foremost - and rarely have I written down these words with more sincerity - I hope this finds you well.

Almost certainly you are here because you value the quality and the integrity of the journalism produced by The Yorkshire Post’s journalists - almost all of which live alongside you in Yorkshire, spending the wages they earn with Yorkshire businesses - who last year took this title to the industry watchdog’s Most Trusted Newspaper in Britain accolade.
