Starbucks offers NHS free tall drink for today only

The 'early festive thank you' includes Starbucks' Christmas drinks and its espresso-based classics to iced beverages.

There are millions of customisation options available in-store to help make your order your own.

The coffee chain's deal is part of an ongoing partnership between Starbucks and NHS Charities Together (NHSCT).

Each Starbucks store across the country is paired with one of over 250 local NHS charities, to help support staff, patients, and communities across the UK.

NHS Charities Together provides varied and extensive support including counselling, helplines, and peer-to-peer support for staff.

It also includes projects that support the long-term recovery of the NHS and reduces health inequalities in local communities.  

Ellie Orton OBE, Chief Executive at NHS Charities Together, said:“We’re incredibly grateful for the continued support from Starbucks. Their free Tall beverage initiative and in-store fundraising can make a vital difference to support staff, volunteers and patients across the UK.”  

Meanwhile, Alex Rayner, General Manager at Starbucks UK, said:“We hope this small gesture gives all NHS workers the opportunity to take a moment to enjoy this festive period and demonstrates our huge appreciation of the NHS for all that they do, all year round.

Starbucks has also introduced its largest range of reusable merchandise this festive season.

Customers now have more reusable cup options and there is a 25p discount the next time they bring their cup into the store.

NHS staff have also been encouraged to make the switch by using a reusable cup to drink their free Tall beverage.
