Greene King has raised £1.6 million for Macmillan cancer support in the past three years, beating its target of £1 million.

Employees across the company raised funds for the charity, which is Greene King’s first national charity partner.

Rooney Anand, chief executive officer at Greene King says: “I am immensely proud of our team and our customers who have gone above and beyond what we had thought possible to raise £1.6million for Macmillan.

"When we launched our partnership in April 2012 we hoped that it would bring together our teams from right across the business, and the unique fundraising ideas, team spirit and support for Macmillan has been inspirational - every one of us is touched in some way by cancer, and hopefully we have done our bit to help Macmillan provide support to those people affected.”


Simon Phillips, director of fundraising at Macmillan Cancer Support added: “I would like to say congratulations to everyone at Greene King who has been involved in raising this absolutely fantastic sum of money for Macmillan. To exceed a fundraising target by £600,000 is incredibly impressive and is testament to the efforts of a brilliant and dedicated team. The money you have raised will help fund vital Macmillan services which enable us to ensure that no one faces cancer alone. Thank you.”

Recent fundraising efforts from the pub company include taking on the Yorkshire Three Peaks challenge, which raised £80,000 and donations from selected Greene King desserts, which raised £150,000.

Greene King’s charity efforts will go towards a number of Macmillan projects, including funding a new cancer treatment centre at Ipswich Hospital.
