Commenting on the back to school deals available to members, Tom Dalby, CEO of Blue Light Card, said: ‘The pandemic caused great disruption for thousands of children and their parents throughout the last school year, with many relying on home schooling for the first time. However, as key workers, many of the blue light community’s children still attended school in person, with much smaller class sizes and strict restrictions in place. This coming new school year brings with it a new hope for a brighter time ahead and allows all of our kids to return to face-to-face lessons, lunch times with friends and extracurricular activities.
‘To celebrate the bravery and perseverance of the blue light community and their children during this challenging and unknown time, we are thrilled to offer a range of exclusive discounts to help our emergency services, NHS and social sector members when shopping for their back to school supplies.’
