A new initiative has been launched to offer a free breakfast to healthcare workers as a way of thanking them for their efforts during the pandemic.

Company TLC which runs Cuffley Manor care home and Cooperscroft in Potters Bar, will be holding 'Blue Light Tuesdays' welcoming all healthcare professionals and frontline workers for a treat and beverage at any of their homes.

The event is split with two opportunities to visit the home; the first being in the morning for a breakfast bap with tea or coffee, and the second in the evening for a sweet treat to end the day with a hot drink.

Blue Light Tuesdays is available on the first Tuesday of each month between 7-9:30am and 5-7pm where visitors will be greeted and offered a hot or cold drink with a takeaway treat.

“A big thank you to Cooperscroft for hosting such a lovely event showing appreciation for the wonderful work that healthcare staff are doing. It’s always a pleasure to see the friendly and caring team at Cooperscroft and we love working in partnership with them to host events for the community," said Anita Patel from Home Instead.
