Greene King country pub arm Chef & Brewer is offering free meals to all Macmillan professionals this month (January).

The initiative, which is available until 31 January, is a reward for Macmillan nurses and professionals to thank them for their hard work over the festive period.

Chef & Brewer brand controller Carol Rhead said: “The care and support that Macmillan professionals provide makes such a difference in the local community, which is why we want to reward them by giving them a free meal so they have the chance to continue enjoying Christmas into January.”

Thank you

To claim the meal, Macmillan professionals need to visit www.chefandbrewer.com/Macmillan​ and fill in a form to receive a voucher code.

Macmillan Cancer Support is Greene King’s national charity partner and, since 2012, Greene King team members and guests have raised more than £3.6m for the charity.

Fundraising events have included taking part in the world’s biggest coffee morning, running the London Marathon and taking part in activities such as jumping out of planes.

Wonderful gesture

From May 2012 to September 2016, Greene King’s coffee mornings raised almost £500,000 and in May 2016, Greene King gave out free roast dinners to Macmillan nurses.

Macmillan Cancer Support senior partnership manager Rachel Gascoigne said: “Macmillan nurses and professionals work extremely hard every hour of every day, regardless of Christmas to support people with cancer.

“The free meal from Chef & Brewer is a wonderful gesture to thank them for their work over the festive period.”
