Successful partnership with Marie Curie Cancer Care
In 2012 Mitchells & Butlers' concluded its very successful three year corporate charity partnership with Marie Curie Cancer Care. Our support team's enthusiasm and support for the charity has been fantastic and we are delighted to say that, in total, we donated a staggering £192,000 over the three year period.
This amount was raised through a combination of annual corporate donations, employee fundraising and donations from our guests buying pins in the Great Daffodil Appeal. Our employees have participated in the Great Escape Challenge, cake sales, raffles, a sponsored abseil, marathon events, books sales, pub quizzes, skittle nights, dress down days as well as individual team member challenges such as sponsored runs, walks and cycles.
Chairman, Bob Ivell, commented: "We are absolutely delighted with the final figure raised for Marie Curie. Our employees have taken support for the charity to heart and have shown great enthusiasm, generosity and dedication to supporting cancer care."
This donation has funded nearly 10,000 nursing hours across the UK and the team at Marie Curie sent us a letter thanking each and every one of our employees for their amazing support.
