Chef & Brewer, which is owned by Greene King, is dedicated to providing delicious pub classics. Greene King is working in partnership with Macmillan Cancer Support, raising vital funds to help Macmillan support people living with cancer. The free meals are just one of a number of activities that the Bear & Staff will be doing this year to support the charity.

Other Chef & Brewer pubs also taking part include the Boathouse, Peterborough.

Rachel Gascoigne, senior partnership manager at Macmillan Cancer Support 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.”

Since 2012, Greene King team members and guests have raised over £3.6 million through the charity partnership with Macmillan – whether through taking part in the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning, running the London Marathon, or taking part in fundraising activities such as jumping out of planes.
