Macmillan is the pub company’s chosen charity and Macmillan nurses are being invited to enjoy a free roast dinner every Sunday in May at over 500 pubs as part of a Macmillan May fundraising drive.
May also marks International Nurses Day on Thursday 12 May, the anniversary of Florence Nightingale’s birth, so is a special month for nurses around the world.
Fiona Gunn, Marketing Director for Greene King, said: “Macmillan nurses work tirelessly to support people with cancer, and their care makes such a difference in the local community. May is a key month for nurses, both in the UK and internationally, so we decided to mark our Macmillan May fundraising drive and celebrate their hard work.
“We’re proud to support Macmillan and want to reward them, so we hope they enjoy our offer of a delicious free roast every Sunday throughout May!”
Rachel Gascoigne, partnership manager at Macmillan Cancer Support, said: “Our nurses and other professionals work so hard to make lives better for people affected by cancer, so it’s wonderful to see their work recognised on International Nurses’ Day. We want to everyone at Greene King for their generosity in helping to show our professionals how much their work is appreciated. This is a truly lovely gesture and is a brilliant way to kick off our fourth year as Greene King’s chosen partners.”
In the last three years more than £2 million has been raised by Greene King’s teams and guests and it was recently announced that the partnership has been extended by a further three years.
