We've launched a new loyalty card scheme which provides a 10% saving to Cornwall’s emergency services.
The ‘999 Club’ which launched last week, entitles card-holding members of the police, fire service, Armed Forces, ambulance service, doctors and nurses - as well as the RNLI and Coastguard - to great discounts at Etherington’s award-winning Farm Shop, located just off the A30 near Scorrier.
The scheme is the brainchild of Farm Shop Manager Tara O’Donnell who explains: “Etherington’s sponsored the Andy Hocking Award for Public Service at the Stars of Cornwall Awards in March, and it really brought home what an imperative role the emergency services play in making Cornwall a safer, happier place to live and work – and we wanted to say thank you.”
The Andy Hocking Award for Public Service was presented in memory of PC Hocking who suddenly passed away in 2015; this year’s winner was Mary Parrett, a specialist epilepsy nurse based at the Royal Cornwall Hospital.
Members of the 999 Club will enjoy savings on an array of west-country products at Etherington’s Farm Shop – including Rodda’s clotted cream, Polgoon wines and Halzephron relishes.
The traditional butcher's counter is laden with local and rare-breed cuts, and Etherington’s skilled butchers are always on hand to offer help and advice.
With famous Etherington’s Pastys, sausage rolls, tea, coffee and plenty of cake on sale - it’s the perfect place for grabbing a working lunch too.
Mark Etherington, Managing Director of The Brian Etherington Meat Company, said: “As a family run business, we love giving back to our local community. Showing our appreciation of those who go out of their way to serve the Cornish community with the 999 club, is the least we can do”.
999 club cards are available from the Farm Shop open Monday – Saturday 9am – 5pm.
