Our partnership with Greene King

Our partnership with Greene King, began in May 2012 and thanks to the generosity of their team members and guests, their fundraising total has now reached an incredible £3 million.

We were delighted in 2016 that Greene King, now the country’s biggest pub hospitality company, renewed its partnership for a further three years and the money raised during this time will fund vital services, such as Macmillan nurses.

Since the partnership began, their team members have thrown themselves into fundraising by climbing mountains, sky-diving, running marathons, cycling, swimming, holding coffee mornings, and even pushing beds along dual carriage-ways.

Greene King’s guests have also played an important role in helping to raise money. Pubs, restaurants and hotels have pulled together for Macmillan in their local communities for the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning and guests with a sweet tooth have helped to raise over £300,000 by enjoying selected desserts from Greene King menus, which include a donation to Macmillan.

Rooney Anand, chief executive officer for Greene King, said: 'We are all really proud to have reached this £3m fundraising milestone for Macmillan. Our pubs are in the privileged position of being in the heart of communities and this achievement is all down to our amazing team members and customers who have put on fantastic fundraising events over the last five years. Our Macmillan partnership is incredibly important to us and I know we’ll continue to put all the passion and energy into it as we aim for the next £1m landmark!'
