A decent gesture in these trying times.
Circle K will be offering all emergency services and HSE frontline staff free tea and coffee from now until March 29.
For weeks, the country’s medical staff have been doing their utmost to lessen the spread of the coronavirus across Ireland, all the while responding to and working with cases both in and out of hospital.
Circle K announced this afternoon that that they will be offering free hot drinks to all emergency services and HSE frontline staff from today (March 13) to March 29.
This marks the length of the two week period in which schools, colleges, and childcare facilities will be closed, with social gatherings minimised to lessen the spread of Covid-19.
“In this challenging period, it is vital we all come together and support one another,” said Gordon Lawlor, Managing Director of Circle K Ireland.
“Businesses have a responsibility and crucial role in this regard and Circle K must play its part.
“We are committed to supporting communities across Ireland during this testing period and hope the small measures we have announced today assist HSE frontline staff and emergency services whom we rely on so heavily in difficult times like these.”
Circle K added that they plan to continue to supply fuel and convenience supply items from their stores without any disruption over the coming weeks.
