Inglenook Inns & Tavern announces its partnership with Macmillan Cancer Support. Everyone has been touched directly, whether it is family or friends, by some form of cancer. This ravaging disease impacts on families every day of the week and we personally have had friends who have been nursed by Macmillan nurses, who have allowed them to pass away with dignity and respect. Inglenook Inns & Taverns aim to raise funds to cover the cost of a Macmillan nurse for a year.
'Macmillan Cancer Support is entirely dependent on fundraising to maintain its fantastic service, both to patients and carers. We intend to inspire both our staff and customers to help us achieve these funds', says MD James Waddington. 'We are both proud and committed to making it happen'.
In the past James has personally raised funds through Tough Mudder, Bungee jumping, Triathlons and the Great North Run - but this is now a formal charity partnership. Inglenook Inns & Taverns are organizing Pedal-inn for Macmillan Cancer Support - where James will take a circular route to include all the Inglenook sites - 17 in total and 422 miles, beginning and ending at The Heron in Kendal. This will take place Tuesday 20th - Saturday 24th September - If you would like to help please give a donation via https://www.justgiving.com/Inglenook.
Additionally, individual sites will be organizing a multitude of activities to bolster funds. All pubs will display the iconic Macmillan collection boxes.
Hannah Richmond, Fundraising Manager for Macmillan says “We are delighted to be working in partnership with Inglenook Inns and Taverns and we’re extremely grateful to James and the team for all of the efforts they’re putting into organising various fundraising activities. We look forward to welcoming the cyclists at the end of each day and celebrating such a fantastic achievement with them. All of the money raised throughout the partnership will be spent on our vital services, providing medical, practical, financial and emotional support for people affected by cancer and their families”.
