Celebrating International Nurses Day

This 12th May, celebrate International Nurses Day with us, with discounts available to Blue Light Card holders!

Many of you reading this will doubtless be able to recall a time or occasion when a nurse’s care has helped make your life better. Such stories could be told right across our societies, around the world. This makes it only befitting that, every year since 1965, the invaluable and irreplaceable contribution that nurses make has been celebrated on International Nurses Day, or IND.

Today, IND continues to be observed around the globe on 12th May each year, this date chosen on account it being the anniversary of the birth of Florence Nightingale, the founder of nursing as we know it today. 

This important date is commemorated each year by the International Council of Nurses (ICN). The organisation distributes resources and evidence serving as a reminder of the crucial role nurses play in helping not only their patients, but also their patients’ families and loved ones. 

Here at fourfive, we certainly have plentiful reason to be thankful for everything nurses do for us, not least given our own backgrounds as sportspeople who were inspired to launch our CBD business because of our passion for supporting the health and wellness of others. 

So, it felt only right to us to use the fast-approaching IND as an opportunity for two things: one, to express our gratitude for the sterling work of the entire nursing profession, and two, to remind the National Health Service (NHS) nurses and other health workers among our customers that we offer a 30% discount to Blue Light Card holders.  

Blue Light Card

What is Blue Light Card? 

Blue Light Card is a scheme whereby those in the NHS, emergency services, social care sector, and armed forces are able to access discounts through a range of represented brands, online and in-store.  

Here at fourfive, we are proud to play our part in supporting nurses and other members of the Blue Light Card community through the 30% discounts we offer across our range. 

So, if you are a Blue Light Card holder and fancy treating yourself to the best in CBD bundles, oils, capsules, creams, balms, or gummies this International Nurses Day, why look anywhere else?

Serious CBD products with serious credentials 

One other thing we know and love about nurses here on the fourfive team, is that they have a critical eye for quality and what is right. This applies across the gamut of what they do as nurses, but also to every other part of their life, so they are certainly not likely to accept just ‘any old’ CBD products when they are in the market for them. 

With that in mind, if you are a nurse or other medical worker, you may be reassured to know that our CBD plus+ range (Pro CBD Oil, CBD Muscle Rub & CBD Thermal Joint Gel) have all undergone stringent Banned Substances Control Group (BSCG) testing, and our Vitamins are all certified by Informed Sport

So, you can be sure that these CBD products are free from hidden drugs, THC and other compounds that are banned in sport. 

And of course, our 30% Blue Light Card discounts on these renowned fourfive products are available right through the year, not just on International Nurses Day. So, whether you are a nurse or work in another eligible profession, why not help yourself today to some new favourites of your own?
