Our partnership with Greene King

Our partnership with Greene King began in May 2012, and thanks to the generosity of its team members and customers, the company has now raised £5 million to support people living with cancer.

Having originally set out to raise £1 million over three years, Greene King exceeded its target a year early and the partnership continues to go from strength to strength. The money raised currently funds Macmillan professionals and nurses, supporting people with emotional, medical and practical support to people living with cancer in the UK.

Since the partnership began, Greene King’s team members have thrown themselves into fundraising by climbing mountains, running marathons, cycling, swimming, hosting Coffee Mornings and taking part in the company’s annual fundraising event, Macmillan May. This event alone raised over £370,000 in 2018.

Greene King’s guests have also played an important role in helping to raise money. Pubs, restaurants and hotels have pulled together to support Macmillan in their local communities, and guests with a sweet tooth have raised over £500,000 by enjoying selected desserts from Greene King menus, which include a donation to Macmillan.

Rooney Anand, Chief Executive Officer for Greene King, said: ‘I feel incredibly proud that our team members at Greene King have managed to contribute such an enormous amount towards helping those living with cancer.’
