Greene King customers have been invited to show their support for Macmillan Cancer workers by simply visiting their local.

Pubgoers can share messages of appreciation for Macmillan Cancer Support workers by writing messages on customised beer mats.

Pints of gratitude 

From 4 to 15 October 2021, pubgoers will be able to share personal messages of gratitude to Macmillan Cancer Support nurses and healthcare professionals for the vital hard work they do to help those living with cancer, and their families, by writing on beer mats.

Rachael Gascoigne, senior partnership manager at Macmillan Cancer Support said: “This is such a lovely gesture from Greene King customers and team members.”

“The nationwide thank you will mean so much to our Macmillan nurses and healthcare professionals who work tirelessly in their local communities to support people living with cancer – and to know just how much they are valued, especially after such a difficult time.”

Big thank you

At the end of the month, the best of the heartfelt messages from all 600 Greene King pubs, will be gathered and made into a collage, ready to be added to a huge 10 ft thank you card, produced by the pub chain and addressed to Macmillan nurses across the UK.

Greene King first partnered with Macmillan in 2012 and set out to raise £1m in the first three years of the partnership, this target was exceeded with more than a year to spare and since then, over £9m has been raised thanks to annual fundraisers, coffee mornings and via Pennies, the digital charity box.

Tracy Derbyshire, general manager of the Kings Ransom, in Sale, Greater Manchester, said: “We’re very proud to support Macmillan, their work impacts many in our community and we’re passionate in our efforts to back the invaluable work they do.”
