OLPRO, one of the UK’s largest retailers for outdoor leisure products, is providing all NHS and blue light workers with its largest ever discount of 25% off all products, as a thank you for their ongoing service throughout the coronavirus outbreak.
OLPRO made the announcement after a total of 65,000 ex-doctors and nurses have been asked to return to work as COVID-19 continues to spread. Final year medical students and nurses are also being asked to take temporary roles to boost numbers of staff.
Earlier this month, OLPRO were in the news for providing sleeping bags for the CCP Charity Sleep Out event in Cheltenham and have already given a number of sleeping bags to people who had their homes ruined by the 2020 floods.
Daniel Walton, Founder of OLPRO, said: “We know this is a hugely stressful time for our NHS and emergency service workers and providing them with our largest ever discount is just our way of saying thank you for their incredibly selfless work.”
“We’re proud to be able to use our position as an e-commerce business to try to help all parts of society whenever we physically can and we hope that we can inspire other businesses to do their bit to help society in any way that they can.”
As airlines continue to cancel flights worldwide, the camping industry has become a popular alternative for holiday-goers who are looking for an affordable and reliable ‘staycation’.
Worcester-based OLPRO have recently been named the FSB’s ‘Digital/E-Commerce Business of the Year 2020’ for the West Midlands.
