A PROUD PARTNERSHIP FOR OVER A DECADE WORKING WITH MACMILLAN CANCER SUPPORT

Here at Greene King, we love Macmillan Nurses!


Having partnered with the charity in 2012, Greene King has raised over 18 million pounds for Macmillan Cancer Support. The money raised currently funds Macmillan professionals and nurses, providing emotional, medical and practical support to people living with cancer in the UK.

Last year Greene King celebrated another record-breaking fundraising year for Macmillan, as its team members across its pubs, breweries and support centres raised a phenomenal £3.8million in 2023, the highest yearly fundraising total in the history of the partnership.

This latest fundraising achievement is the equivalent of £434 raised every hour and in total could fund up to 82,353[1] Macmillan nursing hours, helping to provide people living with cancer with the support that they need, when they need it most.
This vital support is so important to people like Charlotte 46, from Kent, who was diagnosed with cervical cancer in 2022.  Charlotte discusses the impact her Macmillan nurse had on her own experience: “When I received my diagnosis, my Macmillan nurse was with the consultant when he told me. She stayed and talked to me about the next steps. She helped me make sense of what was happening. She offered support when I had to tell my 16-year-old daughter. Macmillan nurses are the life blood of people’s cancer journey. They go above and beyond what is required.”

Our partnership continues to go from strength to strength and we are incredibly proud, as a company, to put our all behind such an important cause and are so thankful to our teams and customers for all their hard work.

This year, in 2024, we are asking for your support to help us smash through the £20million fundraising total. 100% of your donation from The Greene King Shop will be passed to Macmillan Cancer Support.
