Asda is now offering emergency responders the chance to grab a free cup of tea or coffee in its Ayrshire stores to help them get through their shifts during the colder weather.

Until the December 31, Asda is inviting emergency responders on shift and in uniform to grab themselves a free tea or coffee from either the Asda Cafe or the Self Service Costa or Leon Machines.

To claim the free drink whilst on shift, emergency responders just help themselves to a hot drink from either the instore café or self-serve machine and take it to the till where staff will process it free of charge.

The offer is for one drink per emergency responder. The initiative is open to paramedics, police officers and firefighters and is available all day, every day.

Hayley Tatum, Asda Chief People and Corporate Affairs Officer, said: “This initiative is a token of our appreciation for the tireless work that our emergency responders are carrying out in the communities in which we operate.

"Whether on duty, enjoying a break or finishing a shift, we invite them to pop in, say hi and grab a cuppa.”
