Thank you, key workers

Our thank you to Key Workers came to an end at midnight on April 19th. We’re incredibly grateful to everyone that took part, it’s been a pretty humbling experience receiving each of your key worker selfies and a pleasure to serve each of you with a code. 

Thank you, key workers.

We thought we knew all about stepping out into the unknown. But the bravery in everyone who is still getting out there to protect us and keep things running is off the scale.

To say thank you, we’re giving 50% off everything to all key workers in case you need some kit to help you on the job or to grab a moment outdoors (when you can).

Whether you’re a nurse, paramedic, refuse collector, delivery driver or any other role providing a key service, we’ve got you covered. Simply tag or DM us in a selfie wearing your uniform and we’ll send you a code.

A huge thanks to everyone out there working hard to keep the rest of us safe.

Berghaus

A bit of info on how it works:

  • Tag or direct message us on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram with a selfie of you in your staff uniform and a member of the Berghaus team will be in touch with their thanks and a unique code for you to use on Berghaus.com. Don’t wear a uniform? We’re happy to accept images that show proof of employment, this might be a shot of you at work or some form of ID but please don’t include any personal or confidential information with us.
  • You then just need to add your order to the basket and enter your unique code in the promo box at the checkout
  • You’re able to order a maximum of 5 Berghaus products using your code
  • We’re making continual changes to ensure that we’re keeping our team and our customers safe and you can keep up-to-date with the latest information here. Our current delivery timings are up to 20 days. Once your order is placed, we’ll make sure you’re kept up to date about the status of your delivery.
  • You have until April 12th 2020, or while stock lasts, to use your personal code. Update: we have now extended our key worker thank you until midnight on April 19th 2020
  • Each code can be used once only and is not valid on any of the products within our ‘outlet’ section (these will already have discount applied)
  • Should Berghaus need to continue to make changes to the way that it works to keep its teams and customers safe and close its online store, we will need to pause, stop or review the offer of thanks.
  • All of our usual website terms and conditions apply and you can find them here
  • From the 12th April onwards we will be deleting all images received via social media inboxes.
