North East firm Redu has launched a new benefits app to reward brave front line workers with small acts of kindness from the public.

The Seaham-based tech company created Front Line Rewards as a gesture of thanks to the selfless heroes caring for us in our time of need.

Members of the public and businesses are able to make small acts of kindness donations via the Front Line Rewards website.

Jonathan Ward, Reward Me Now Partnerships Manager, said: “This is a token of appreciation to show our support for the front line heroes doing an amazing job for our communities during this unprecedented crisis.

“So whether it’s cheering up a tired healthcare worker after a busy night shift, or saying thank you to the unsung heroes of the NHS working round the clock to beat this terrible virus, our website allows people to show how incredibly grateful they are to our brave NHS workers with a small act of kindness.”

The Front Line Rewards app also offers exclusive discounts for the wider key worker community, with savings of up to 18% instantly available at brands such as Argos, Just Eat, Spotify, iTunes, Hobbycraft and Xbox.
