Leading food-delivery company Deliveroo has announced that it is giving away 10 Deliveroo Gold Cards for frontline healthcare and community heroes who have worked tirelessly during the COVID-19 outbreak.

The coveted Gold Cards, which have previously been given to celebrity Deliveroo fans including Lewis Capaldi and Gemma Collins, will be awarded exclusively to frontline workers, including NHS workers, volunteers and care workers as a token of gratitude for their ongoing inspirational work to support and care for the vulnerable.

The public can nominate themselves, friends and family on Deliveroo’s Instagram, Facebook and Twitter pages by tagging them and highlighting their contribution, to be in with a chance to win. Ten winners will be selected at random to receive a Gold Card worth £1,000 in Deliveroo credit. Nominations are open from today until 16th June.

It comes as Deliveroo is making 500,000 free meals available to NHS workers and vulnerable people as part of it’s Support the NHS campaign, which launched in March. With the support of Deliveroo’s restaurant partners, customer donations and corporate partners, Deliveroo has been delivering meals to hospitals and communities across the country throughout the COVID-19 period. In addition to this, Deliveroo released over 80,000 free £20 vouchers for NHS workers.

Will Shu, CEO and co-founder of Deliveroo, said the company wanted to 'recognise and celebrate the thousands of frontline heroes across the country who have been doing their bit throughout what has been a remarkably challenging period'.

"The way communities have rallied to support each other is inspiring and these Gold Cards are another small token of our appreciation for the individuals who have gone over and above.”
